Thanksgiving Menu for Admissions

Preparing your menu for admissions is a lot like preparing for Thanksgiving.  It takes time and effort to prepare scrumptious and eye-pleasing presentations.  If you are thinking about Thanksgiving, let me share my menu with you.  If you are thinking about college admission, I'll give you my menu for that as well!

food-prep



For Thanksgiving, I'm having 10 people I dearly love for dinner, and I want it to look great and taste wonderful.  Here is the plan:

  • Advanced Planning:

    • Appetizers

    • Vegetable Tray

    • Apples with Carmel Dip

    • Baked Mozzarella Sticks with Marinara

    • Cocoa with Candy Cane and Whipped Cream

    • Egg Nog and Egg Nog Latte



  • Dinner

    • Turkey with gravy

    • Mashed Potatoes

    • Sausage Stuffing

    • Homemade Bread

    • Whipped Sweet Potato

    • Asparagus Spears

    • Cranberry Relish

    • Sparkling Cider



  • Dessert

    • Pumpkin Pie

    • Apple Pie

    • Cranberry Sorbet




Each item will take planning, and it has to be carefully timed to be presented at just the right moment while it's still warm - or cool.  I make as much as possible ahead of time.  Some things, like thawing a turkey, take a LOT of advanced planning.

My menu for Admission will also take some planning, and it needs to be carefully time and be presented at just the right moment.  Here is the plan for admission:

  • Advanced Planning:

    • Rigorous curriculum

    • Admission tests

    • College visits



  • Dinner:

    • Transcript

    • Reading List

    • Course Descriptions

    • Application forms

    • Financial Aid forms

    • Letters of recommendation

    • Supplemental materials

    • Application essays



  • Dessert:

    • Graduation party

    • Diploma

    • Senior portraits




Like a Thanksgiving menu, each item takes time and planning.  Some things, like course descriptions, must be planned far in advance.  Another similarity; same due date.  Many experts recommend for best scholarships you complete the application before Thanksgiving!
