Application Process

Ever wonder what happens once you submit your application? Does a group of suited judges look over every detail and stamp either "Accepted" or "Rejected" on it? Do you think names might just be drawn from a hat?

The truth lies somewhere in between. Each college has its own review process, but in general your application will be evaluated based on your:

  • Test scores.
  • Class rank.
  • Academic record.
    • Classes completed
    • Grades achieved
  • Extracurricular activities.
  • Work and volunteer experience.
  • Honors and awards.
  • Essay.

Wait! What? An essay? Yes, some college applications require an essay. You might need to address a specific topic or simply write why you want to attend this particular school. Find out how to write an effective application essay.
