The most important factors to consider…
* Quick Facts *
- School Achievement has been the single most important factor in college admissions since the early 1980’s
- School Achievement includes grade point average (GPA) and rigor of courses taken.
- Colleges look at an entire high school transcript (starting with ninth grade and continuing through the end of your senior year).
- Colleges look for length of time and depth of extracurricular activities (having random activities just to fill out a resume does not demonstrate commitment). Participate in activities you enjoy and want to make a commitment to, proving to colleges you can balance academic, cultural, recreational, and social interests.
