#007 – The more selective a college or university is, the more requirements they have, and the higher the level they expect each requirement to be completed.
On this episode, we talk about the qualities these schools are looking for in applicants to be considered for admission.
These are qualities that go beyond grades, test scores, and academic ability in general, and spill over into areas outside the high schools themselves. We talk about each of those requirements.
We also share information related to students who were admitted to two selective schools and one highly selective school, the University of Southern California, UCLA, and Stanford University.
We go over the Grade Point Averages, and SAT and/or ACT test scores those students presented in their admission applications.
This is very useful information for high school students making a list of colleges to which to apply, since it allows them to gauge their chances for admission.
