Applicants, you are at a critical intersection in life. You are finishing one stage of your academic or professional career, and about to embark on the next. But first, you need to apply. The process is complex, frustrating, and aggravating. It frequently requires that you submit a detailed form -- paper or web-based -- multiple essays, at least two letters of recommendation, and a resume. Some schools will also require an interview, and if you are subjected to the purgatory known as the wait-list, you will have even more to write.

How can you navigate this maze-like process? Follow the advice found in Submit a Stellar Application: 42 Terrific Tips.
