12 What Will Colleges Review in the Application Process?

Each college reviews the transcript according to their own criteria. o All colleges review the courses selected, especially those for senior year.

23 SAT vs ACT
24 Consider the ACT? The ACT with Writing Assessment tests are universally accepted for college admission. The ACT Assessment is accepted by virtually all colleges and universities in the U.S., including all of the Ivy League schools. The ACT Assessment tests are curriculum based. The questions on the ACT are directly related to what you have learned in your high school courses in English, mathematics, and science. However, the ACT math section covers basic Trigonometry, while SAT math section covers Algebra II. Students should have a strong aptitude for scientific reasoning. 24
25 Subject Tests SAT Subject Tests- Some subjects like math could be taken twice (Math Level 2) Other subject areas could be taken directly after finishing the course. Subject Tests measure your knowledge of a particular subject. If you continue to study the subject and take the test again, your score should reflect your increased knowledge. Subject Tests are Optional for the UC and not required at all by the CSU. Subject Tests can be required for some majors at the UC s. (i.e. Math 2 for Engineering majors.) Two Subject Tests are required by many highly selective colleges. (rarely three required) Check with the college website for Subject Test requirements. 25
26 Are Prep Classes Helpful? Most students learn testing strategies and seem more comfortable with the tests. A list of test prep providers in our area is available in the Counseling Center. For free practice online go to https://www.khanacademy.org/test-prep/sat 26
27 It s not about the name, it s about the match! 27
28 What to Expect? The decision to choose a college is YOUR decision. Your counselor is here to assist you in understanding your resources and options. You have more informational resources than any previous generation in learning about colleges. You are ultimately the one who will go off to college, not your counselor, your friends, and not even your parents. Make it your process. The more research you do now, the happier you will be with the list of colleges when you apply. 28
29 Consider You will meet with your counselor, but the research/reflection on the college match takes more time than you can possibly be out of class. You can attend several college workshops during collaboration and lunch to gain more information. Goal for this spring/summer: Research your college list during this fall, spring and summer. Visit colleges if you can. Arrive at school in August with a clear idea about where you would like to apply.
30 Making the Match Means Looking Beyond the Brand Names Do not judge yourself by how you compare with others. Prestige is over-rated---success is based on how much you grow making a good match means you will thrive at the college you attend. Care about the match be comfortable---authentic self not some projection of excellence that you do not believe you are but feel you have to be. College search should be fun and fulfilling---you ARE GOING TO LOVE YOUR COLLEGE. College is serious work but also lots of fun and adventure.
32 Be Realistic: Making the Match There may be several colleges that make a good match. There is not just a one and only. More safety and target=more acceptances. More reach-must be prepared for deny or waitlist. How many applications can you handle? Be Flexible: With 3,500 colleges, could there be one you have not considered? Apply broadly-you may change your mind by May 1 of your senior year on where you would like to be in Be Informed: No regrets, If only I had known 32
33 Making the Match Activity Using the Priority Board, please rank your top 5 priorities in selecting a college.
34 Geographic Location California, Mid West, East Coast? Where do relatives live? What type of transportation is necessary to travel to and from home? Size of College The size of the campus: 1 acre or 400 acres? Enrollment: 26 students to 50,000 students? Cost Can range from Community College tuition to $60,000 per year. Do you plan to attend grad school? Sports NCAA sports? Banana slug vs. Trojans? PAC 12 or Patriot League? Division I, II, III, NAIA? Intramural Sports? Club Sports? Academic Programs and Honors Programs What majors? Can you change your major? Is my major featured at this school? Is the academic model more theoretical or practical? Surrounding Community Rural / Suburban / Urban? Weather? Ocean? Mountains? Small college town, big city, opportunities for internships in the local areas? Transportation options? Religious Orientation Holy Cross, Catholic, other religious affiliation-requirements for religion courses? Public/Private/ Specialty Art, Music, Drama, Technical School Social Atmosphere What type of students-can I picture myself among them? Is there diversity? Female/Male? Sororities/Fraternities? Clubs? Service? Academic Atmosphere Are the standards for academic involvement compatible with my goals? Research opportunities? Time most students invest in study? Class size and opportunities to interact with professors? Large classroom, discussion groups, small class size? Very competitive academic environment vs. collaborative environment? What works for you? Community/Housing Is this a residential campus where most of the students come from more than 50 miles away? Will most students be on campus on the weekends? Do students live on campus all four years? OR Is this a college where students commute or go home on weekends? What is there to do outside of class time? Selectivity What would make me distinguished from other equally qualified applicants if this school has a low admission rate? Have I researched my chances for admission at this school? Is my choice based more on ranking than a great match? Is my application realistic or magical 34 thinking?
35 Reach-Target-Safety REACH: GPA and test score averages are above the student s scores. OR Admission rate may make the probability of getting in more of a gamble: Stanford Top Tier Schools: Admission rate below 20%. Admits students at the top of their high school class. If it is a very selective college, will it spark your competitive side or will it overwhelm you? Is this school a match for you? 35
36 Highly Selective- Low Admission Rates
37 Target Student s grades and test scores match the average student admitted, therefore the student is more likely to be admitted. 37
38 Safety Student s GPA and test scores are above the average student admitted. Admission rate indicates high probability of admission. Each student should apply to at least two safety schools as individual college acceptance rates change each year. 38
