#1:  How do you measure your chances for admissions?

How competitive for admissions will you be? This is based on several factors. Some factors are more measurable in the college applications process than others. The easily measured factors include:

  • Your GPA
  • Your tests scores on ACT, AP, SAT or Subject tests

Less measurable, but equally important in your college application process are:

  • How hard you challenged yourself in your course schedule
  • Activities you were involved in during high school
  • Contributions you made to your community
  • Your love of learning
  • Your life’s experiences
