The process of achieving admission to colleges in the USA has grown notably more competitive. It’s important to recognize that a strong GPA alone no longer serves as a guaranteed path to college acceptance.
Today, the admission process takes into account several other factors – academic performance, extracurricular activities, letters of recommendation, well-crafted essays, and, in some cases, a portfolio or successful interview.
Beyond academic achievements, colleges now consider a holistic view of the applicant, valuing qualities such as effective communication skills, time-management, organizational abilities, and ethical integrity – how developed a student is personally.
As early as the 8th grade, high school students can engage with our college counselors to receive guidance on major, course, and activity selection so they can carve a path to their dream schools.
