Don’t Sell Yourself Sold Short

NOVA_HP_StartThe number one mistake you can make is never trying.  If you have met the stated requirements for a program you should submit an application. You will never be penalized for applying to many times to a program. Some years our programs are highly competitive, while in other years we accept a significant portion of our applicants. In any case, you are best served by applying when you have completed your prerequisites.

Remember never sell yourself short.
