Factors in College Admissions

There are a number of factors in college admissions decisions. There are SAT or ACT scores. There are grades. There’s course selection. There are teacher letters of recommendation. And the guidance counselor letter of recommendation. And talent outside of the classroom. And extracurriculars. And college interviews. And college essays. And Subject Test scores. And AP scores. And demonstrated interest in the college to which the student is applying. The list is quite a long one. What we’ve mentioned above absolutely isn’t everything. It’s simply a sampling.
