What do admissions officers consider?
When looking at college applicants, admissions officers consider:
- Courses taken in high school - Students who take challenging courses will be considered better prepared
for college than students who take the easier route through high school.
- Grades - A Student's grade point average and class standing is important to admissions officers
- College entrance exam scores - colleges use your scores to determine your readiness for college
academics and which courses you are prepared to take during your freshman year.
- Extracurricular activities - Are you involved in high school activities, and will you be involved on campus?
Students who are involved in campus activities are more likely to remain in college and thrive on campus.
- College Essay - Some colleges require essays and use them to judge writing skills and to learn more
about you as an individual.
- Interview - If required, it is important for you to present yourself as someone who is bright, articulate,
and interested in being involved in the school. Be honest about yourself and let them see the real you.
- Whether the college is the right fit for you - will you like the lifestyle of the particular campus?
Will you fit in with fellow classmates? Does the campus have activities that match your interests?
Checklist for making the most out of high school:
- Take classes recommended for college preparation.
- Talk to your counselor.
- Use testing information
- Examine your scores and take extra courses or get tutoring assistance for weaker academic areas.
