Questions Answers
I’m was admitted to as the Class of 2024, with the option to take a gap year as the Class of 2025. Although I decided to continue as ‘24, many of my fellow admits decided on a gap year. Given that a good amount of the “seats” for the c/o 2025 are filled with gap years, do you anticipate acceptance rates for this admissions cycle to decrease? Absolutely. This is the conundrum that will have enrollment managers scratching their heads.
There will be a clear dip in enrollment due to the sheer number of students taking a gap year for this fall. As a result of that, for the class of 2024, many colleges accepted much deeper into the WL than they were used to. This will compensate for part of the number of students who decided to defer admission until next fall.
For the coming cycle, enrollment managers will have to be very clear as to how they will deal with a potential influx of students. In my talks with my colleagues on the college side, this will likely result in extra emphasis on the WL for the class of 2025 just to make sure they are extra intentional with making sure they do not over-enroll.
The above is a discussion for the 100 or so highly selective schools, which will continue to have high demand.
On the other end of the spectrum, many less competitive schools will struggle to fill seats. As such, their acceptance rates will likely increase.
the below is a reply to the above
For those accepted off the waitlist do you also need to allow them to take a gap year if desired? Doesn't this create a huge issue where there will be very few spots for 2025? I know my school's policy was to allow anyone to take a gap year or return to school after a gap of any number of years if desired for undergrad. Had a student who really did take this to the fullest extent and came back to school in his 70's. Good question. Some colleges will only accept students off their WL if they guarantee that they will enroll for the fall. It is a numbers game after all.
I can't imagine many colleges letting students off the WL only to have them defer. I'm sure they would exist, I just don't know any off the top of my head.
I've only heard 1-2 year deferment. I haven't heard of more than that!
the below is another reply to the original answer
Why will the less competitive schools struggle to fill seats? Won’t their students also be taking a gap year? Absolutely. This will be a difficult problem for them to solve.
Check out this interesting chart from Professor Scott Galloway from NYU:
https://api.profgalloway.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/07/US_Higher_Ed4.png
I signed up to take the ACT in April and it's been cancelled every month since then. Do I really need to take the test? That depends on the school. You can read on a school website if they are test optional at all.
Some schools are very specific with their policy -- they make sure to state that they will not penalize students in any way if they are physically unable to take the test.
If this is you, you will have the chance to explain on your application that you were unable to take the ACT even though you tried.
Other schools will still recommend that you take the ACT/SAT if at all possible. They will use the scores for class placements, merit scholarships, or other considerations.
Other schools would still like to see a high test score if at all possible, especially at a slightly more selective school because they may be inundated with inflated GPAs this year.
So it depends on the types of schools you're looking at. If you have aspirations of more competitive colleges, then I would recommend you keep trying to take the ACT if it is safe to do so.
What kind of schools are you looking at?
I am architect from India and I was wondering is it a good choice for me to apply for masters abroad in US or any other country in general? Because I hear it's incredibly hard to get a job and visa to pay off the student loans in architecture especially. Also has the covid situation made the prospect of getting a job even worse? COVID has made it very difficult for international students. As most colleges will be remote in the fall, many international students who have already enrolled will be studying online from home.
If you choose to wait for a year, you will have no trouble getting in to an M. Arch program. However, most Masters programs are very expensive and often do not offer financial aid for international students.
Furthermore, you are correct: your ability to get a job afterwards is not guaranteed. Since you are not a citizen, you will need to find a job that will be willing to sponsor your work visa. If you are not in a position to afford a masters and it will put you into a difficult financial place, I would not recommend you come to study in the US.
the below is a reply to the original question
If your dream is to move to the US I would try focus on the L1 visa, I think that is one of the easiest visas to get approved for. You have to work for a company with a significant American presence, and once you are at the manager level they can transfer you to the US for a few years, and then hopefully progress you to a Green Card. That was my path and it took about five years from deciding I wanted to move, getting hired at the right company, and then getting transferred. That was valuable insight!
How do small liberal arts colleges like CMC differ in their admissions process compared to a bigger school like Northwestern? Given that they're roughly around the same "tier," are the admissions requirements pretty similar or do you feel like they're looking for different types of students altogether? Honestly, the process isn't very different. We used different rubrics and scoring system. But at the end of the day, all the viable candidates were discussed in committee.
The type of students we looked for did differ. This is something a lot of students don't think about. Each university has its own "ethos" that they're trying to create, so they want to attract students that fit into that. At each school, we would often reject perfectly qualified candidates because they really didn't fit what we were looking for.
CMC focused on leadership and drive.
NU focused on creativity and innovation.

ribix_cube: How can I find out what school looks for what type of kids? tinypanda0: I would look at the type of questions they ask on supplementals, their mission statement, and other info on their about page. Also, looking at the kinds of students they accept on their website, magazines, or other literature they publish. The mission statement is huge.
Also direct interaction with admissions officers will help.
the below is a reply to the above
How do I get into direct contact with admissions officers in a natural way? I would love to learn about officers at potential schools but I don’t know how to start the conversation in a way that doesn’t make me seem ... I don’t know sneaky? Basically I don’t want to come across as trying to get my way but instead show my natural curiosity. Lots of AOs do fall travel and may even come to High School.
If not, they will go local presentations and that would be a perfect opportunity to check in with them.
Also, during the age of COVID there are a lot of virtual presentations!
Hello! I am applying to grad school this upcoming winter to study higher ed and student affairs. Hoping to become a college counselor or get into admissions. Do you have any advice on landing a job in this field? Thanks! Where are you going and where do you want to work? I'm happy to speak with you offline. This is not an answer that I would feel comfortable trying to type up because it can be super personal depending on your goals.
the below is a reply to the above
Would I be able to shoot you a message too? I'm currently in a student affairs grad program and would love to ask some questions! drop me a line
Do you know what computer science activities (such as summer activities and internships, extracurriculars, etc...) will impress College Admissions? Because I want to apply to be a computer science major in some colleges. Internships are generally neutral at this point because so many internships are found through parents or through connections.
If you are able to find your own internship through your own means, by all means go for it. And then, make the most out of it. I can't tell you how many times I've seen a student talk about an internship and then not have anything meaningful to say about it.
My advice to you is to take as many coding languages as possible and see if you can design an app/website/program to help kids in your school area with a tiny problem they may have.
the below is a reply to the above
This is really bad advice. Get good at 2 or 3 complementary languages, learn version control, and start working on projects on Github. Learning languages for the sake of "knowing them" is incredibly stupid because unless you use it often you'll forget the syntax, but if you understand CS deeply you can code most languages with Google. Noted.
the below is a reply to the original answer
karsickk: Internships are neutral? Not even slightly positive? SweetieBby: I'm guessing its because there's not a lot of companies hiring underage high schoolers as interns unless they already have some personal connection to them. Not a lot of merit-based internships being offered to 15 years olds This.
In my time, I rarely saw internships that weren't because of nepotism.
the below is a reply to karsickk
If I understood what he said, he is probably talking about internships that weren't obtained through your hard work but through luck or parents, etc.. karsickk: Yeah, that makes sense. How would AOs know if it was nepotism or merit, though? enzoyasuo: Probably through what he learned and how he earned this spot in this internship? I'm not certain. There still exists a possibility that they wouldn't be able to differ between those two. If there wasn't a possibility to distinguish between the two, that's why I would treat it as neutral.
I wouldn't read into it and would look at the other components of the application.
I have a son who will be starting high school this month. The school has numerous AP classes available. Do you have a recommendation as to how many AP classes a student should take? It will really depend on what your goals are.
If your goal is to get as much college credit as possible so as to shorten graduation time, then the answer is as many as possible.
If your goal is to qualify for "selective admissions", then the answer is as many as you can reasonably take without becoming overloaded.
If your goal is to explore subjects that may be of interest, then the answer is as many you can find within your areas of strength/interest.
This is a long conversation I have with many of my families and it usually boils down to one of those three. I usually do an aptitude assessment early on to see which path they should take.
Do you think Standardized Testing (e.g. ACT, SAT, GRE) ought to be phased out? Is it actually a useful metric? How have you used it in your admissions analysis? This is a contentious discussion that many of my colleagues are having right now.
I personally do believe that standardized tests do serve some validity. However, the way these tests are designed do benefit those from higher income brackets. As such, they do inform, but shouldn't be seen as an objective standard of measure.
In my experience, we did use low scores to weed out students if there was no indication of why they received a low score. There was an unspoken expectation that we wanted high scores, but we never would nitpick over a difference of 10 or 20 points.
In fact we would often reject perfect score students because it was clear from their applications that they didn't do much besides study for the exam.
the below is a reply to the above
swimstar186: Sorry, you're saying you rejected applicants with perfect ACT/SAT/GRE scores because they usually sacrificed extracurriculars, etc. to study for these standardized tests? Is that a common practice across the field? sticklebat: Probably not GRE (expectations for grad school are very different, usually), but for the ACT/SAT it depends on the school. Some schools want different things, and some emphasize things like creativity, innovation. Spending all your time studying for a test doesn’t demonstrate those at all. Most schools are looking for more than just good grades and high test scores. That’s why they have essays and recommendations, to get a more thorough picture of the student. GRE carries very little weight these days.
But yes, in admissions we would always say what a student did over 4 hours on a Saturday shouldn't take precedence over their weeks of commitment elsewhere.
Our son took his first AP class last year as a freshman, and scored a 2 on the exam. How badly will that hurt him for college admission? Also, if he continues to take AP classes, but doesn’t do well on the exam... will that do more harm than good? Meaning, he might be better suited to Honors classes. I'm assuming it's AP Human Geography.
If he is able to continue in AP World/Euro/US History and show growth, then the 2 won't matter. Ninth grade is a transitional year anyways, so its okay if students slip up a bit.
If he doesn't do well on AP exams then that will be truly revealing about his study style and should impact the types of colleges he should apply for -- it would imply to me that he is not a "traditional" learner and wants to find a school that will cater to his strengths.
the below is a reply to the original question
Edit: I have been corrected. APs matter a little bit, but not nearly as much as other factors. AP scores do not matter at all to the college during the application review. Some things they do care about are grades, course rigor, class rank, ACT/SAT scores, background, etc. If he didn’t take the AP test, the college would not care either. If he can get high grades in the AP classes that is what matters to the admissions counselor. If your son will end up with the same grade in the honors as the AP, then he should take the AP if he is aiming for a top school. If he is not, then maybe take a few APs throughout high school, not all of them, as honors still look good on an application. Also, don’t overwhelm him. Let him make his own decisions about classes, colleges, and study habits. No one needs that kind of pressure from a parent. (This is just a friendly reminder, as my parents do this to me, and I don’t want others to experience this.) The blanket statements that AP scores do not matter at all wasn't true during my tenure. While they weren't of utmost importance, we did consider them.
This may especially be true this year as standardized test scores will be lacking.
Also, when one of my students got into Stanford, he got a friendly reminder from admissions that they expected him to take any and all AP exams because that was what he had committed to when he enrolled in an AP class.
Again, these are the minority of experiences, but they should be considered.
Not related to college admissions, but what factor would you single out as the primary driver in increasing tuition costs (lack of state funding for public university systems, building fancy new buildings with frivolous amenities like new dorms, too many administrators with overlapping roles like provosts, deans, etc)? Administration is probably the biggest cause for tuition increase.
Students need services like mental health counseling and career counseling.
Unfortunately, it's not cheap to hire these people and create these programs.
For large state schools, it is indeed the lack of government funding. They have had to increase out-of-state and international enrollment to make up for this budget deficit.
How much of an influence does an SAT or ACT score have on undergraduate acceptance and admittance? I was always taught growing up that doing well on these tests was crucial to get into a university, but after going to college and hearing other people’s backgrounds, I’m less convinced they play a major role in deciding where you can or cannot go to study. THIS.
It does not carry as much weight as people do think. It is part of the application process but it is just 1 factor out of as many as 25 factors that admissions people consider.
"Important"? Yes.
"Crucial"? Not exactly.
Why did you decide on this career path? I don’t remember anyone enjoying applying to college when I was a senior in high school, so how is that you enjoy the process from the other side? I went into this career because I didn't have a good support system when I was applying to college.
Some of my apps never went through. There were schools that I wasn't aware of. There were social issues that I faced in college that I would never have anticipated.
I had such a rocky road applying to college that I realize that I didn't want other students to have to deal with that. I wanted to make sure that I could provide them with high quality mentoring so they would have somebody to walk them through and avoid some of the pitfalls I faced.
Are schools anticipating a change in grad school admissions that mirror the situation for undergrads that you discussed earlier? Grad Schools are on the decline. Their prices have gone up exponentially, and the number of young adults who see value in spending $50k plus for a return on investment that is only a fraction of that is going down.
As long as you are willing to pay for grad school, you will be able to find a grad school that will have you.
The programs that I mention are regular Masters' and MBA programs that many people use to advance their careers.
Other types of grad school, like Ph.D's and Medical school will continue to hold up high standards.
What is something that differentiated your admitted students from all the other qualified applicants? DEEP involvement in one or two causes. Not just meeting with club members a couple times a week, but devoting hundreds of hours to something they are passionate about.
the below is a reply to the above
Can you explain why this is such an important criteria now? Looking at it from the other side if I'm trying to hire a mechanical engineer fresh out of college I care about grades, skillset and what student projects were done. I don't care at all if the person spent 50 hours a week in high school at some activity. For a higher level engineering school, this is the only way they can make distinctions among the myriad of applicants they have -- all of whom have stellar grades.

I would be fascinated to find out how this effects Asian-American students at your institution. Based on what we learned from the Harvard case coupled with the flat-lining of Asian-Americans as a share of elite college admissions despite their growing numbers, these sorts of "fuzzy" qualifications are used to suppress their enrollment. Whether that is done subconsciously through internalized bias against Asians on the part of interviewers and admissions committees or is knowingly undertaken in order to place a de facto quota has been my big question all along. I do not believe that the internalized bias against AAPI students is any more prevalent than the internalized bias many people have toward students of other races.
To be clear, bias will always exist in holistic admissions, but then again, bias has always clearly existed even in the more “objective” measures of grades. I can attest that there has never been a quota in my experience.
I would also suggest that you direct some of your questions to colleges who prioritize admission to athletes, legacies, and children of donors. They mess up the game more than you would believe.
How important is creativity in the Common App essay? Is authenticity and a compelling topic more important than creativity (ie should you pick a topic that you can creatively write about or a topic that is more personal)? That is a personal question that we will be discussing in the workshop.
I think it comes down to how you write. Some students aren't at the level that they can write about something "creatively," so it's easier to write a personal heartfelt essay.
However, if you think you can take creatively, you will always earn brownie points from me. I love a good pun.
Hello! How does being multi-interested (undecided lol) affect applications? If my ECs are kind of scattered, would it make more sense to apply as undecided or choose 1 for intended major (public policy or medicine/nursing)? (bc of this, I really like NU bc it seems like they give a lot of flexibility with how many majors/minors you can take on!) Remember that Medicine is not a major!
Nursing is a major and it's almost like its own school. You have to be fully committed to nursing if you choose to go that route.
If you are truly undecided then you need to apply to schools that honor that. I would suggest looking at Liberal Arts Colleges.
You sound like a perfect candidate for the workshop because you need just a little bit of guidance and maybe some help branding your application.
It's okay to be undecided, but you want to make sure that you have a clear message in your application!
Hi! I am currently trying to transfer from my small local college into the University of Michigan. How do you think COVID-19 will affect transfer admissions? Where is your small local college? Why are you looking to transfer? These are questions that I would ask in a normal year, anyways, and these are questions you will need to answer for the transfer application.
If you are a Michigan resident, then you should be fine as UMich is designed to serve its state’s residents.
If you are OOS, it may be more difficult depending on your major and what you’ve studied thus far.
Of course, this is also dependent on whether you’ve been doing well at your current college or not.
the below is a reply to the above
I am at a in-state university with a 3.6 with around 50 credits I think I have a good shot, but I am honestly not sure. At least here in California, priority goes to community college first, then California State schools second, the other University of California schools and private schools third.
I’m not sure if that’s how Michigan works, but it sounds like you’ve worked hard. Feel free to reach out if you need someone to review your application.
Have the number of expected applications increased or decreased? While the number of college age students is on a decline, the number of applications is going up because students today apply to more colleges on average.
My school is allowing us to choose between online and in person learning. I'm not sure what will happen to clubs, but if I choose online learning certain classes may not be available. Will going online hurt my application? Which classes are not going to be available?
Going online will not necessarily hurt your application because your safety is most important. But the question becomes (for highly selective schools) "what will you be doing with your off-time?"
Just because the classes won't be available at your school doesn't mean you can't take them. There are local community colleges, which are often free for high school students. There are also websites and online courses that you can take through other institutions if there is a class that you really think you need.
I know electives won't be available and AP depends on if the school can hire a new person in time. Speaking of taking classes through a website(like edx) is it worth if to get the certificate from the class? The certificate isn’t necessary, but colleges want to see that you’re continuing to be curious and inspired even during this downtime.
If electives won’t be available, how will you choose to engage with your club members or community? If your school won’t have an AP teacher, how can you tap into your resources to make sure you get to learn what you want?
Don’t let your school situation limit you if you can help it.
Would circumstances caused by the pandemic (Such as having to take exams at home as well as mental exhaustion) be acknowledged by colleges as sources for a downward trend in grades/difficulty in being able to conduct any projects in the summer, or would poor grades/lack of summer projects be seen as a none COVID related matter? Possibly. But for selective schools, this may not be the type of student they want to admit.
They want students who were able to excel and be innovative despite the pandemic.
Understandably the first month or two were really difficult for many students. The expectation would be that after the initial shock that there is time to revert back to "normal" -- whatever that may be.
From my personal experience, most of my students are back to "normal" now.
I have an incoming 9th grader and an incoming 6th grader. What should I/we be doing now in order for them to have a higher chance in getting in to the college/university that they want to go to? When I work with students that young, I work with them on exploring all their potential "passions". Much like a Waldorf school, I expose them to different things each month and have them work on little projects within that field.
From there, I can start to see what they are really interested in and encourage to pursue those passions more when they get into high school.
the below is a reply to the original question
Not OP, but a tutor. Please have them read! Anything is fine to start, but start introducing non-fiction, news articles, short stories, and maybe some classics if your kids don’t naturally seek these out. I can’t believe the number of students I work with whose GPAs are 4.0 or better but whose reading comprehension is abysmal. This really hurts them on standardized tests, but it also impacts the depth of their understanding across all subjects. Completely agree!
The students that I see today are generally much weaker at reading and critical thinking.
This is reflected in their ability to write and come up with a coherent argument.
Hi! I’ve taken the SAT and gotten a score in the 98 percentile, but it’s a bit lower than the ranges of schools I’m interesting in (i.e. Yale, Columbia, Princeton). Should I apply test-optional? That’s a question I can’t really answer without understanding the whole context of your application, but if I had to answer directly, I would say submit your score.
Can you shed some light on what discussions around diversity (specifically racial and socioeconomic diversity) were like in the Claremont McKenna admissions office? What do you optimize for? Given that there are only 300ish students per class, I imagine these conversations are quite difficult. I graduated from CMC in 2015 and would love to know more. Also, if you happen to know any of the folks there now, please tell Megan Latta that Becca (the rugby one) says hi. Ah! Megan started when I was reading. Haha. She's super cool.
I don't comfortable sharing that on a public forum, but I can only imagine that you have some opinions having gone through CMC.
One of my closest friends also graduated CMC 2014 -- Marcel Hite. He works for Stanford now.
Nice to see the UD pennant in your pic. Do you have experience working with Delaware? Yes. I work closely with Chuck L. who is the West Coast director for UD. He does a lot of great work for the school and I think UD has a lot of great programs that they are working on for students including their Entrepreneurship and Innovation Center.
It is one of my go-to recommendations for students who plan to go into public policy.
Do you think it will be harder to get into top 50 schools for the next year applicants, especially transfer students? I do not believe transfer admissions will change much. It has always been incredibly difficult, unpredictable, and dependent on enrollment.
I do believe first-year admissions will be much more unpredictable because many conventional statistics will no longer be available or reliable.
How do you see Letter of Recommendations being impacted for the class of 26 given that many will not see their junior year teachers for most of the year? This will really set off certain students, because the most committed and engaged students will not have let the pandemic affect their interaction with teachers.
Some of my students are still actively engaging with their teachers over the summer as they plan events and activities.
These students will end up being ones who stand out.

[deleted] I appreciate your comment and how you worded it.
You are right. I did speak from a position of privilege that has been influenced by the schooling system that I am involved in.
There is no expectation for a student from an underresourced school to be able to get the same type of letter of recommendation from their teachers. That would be unfair, and most of colleagues are aware of that.
the below is another reply to the original answer
I wonder if the comfort kids have with adults has to do with their HH income and/or educational level of their parents. Last week my rising jr mentioned, off hand, that she emailed her AP Lang teacher a picture of her and her friend making heart signs with their hands, and her teacher emailed back with a picture of herself making the same heart sign. It's just a little shocking to me that she doesn't think twice to engage her teachers outside of classwork. I grew up poor and would never have even thought to do something like this. Just asking teachers questions about homework was difficult enough. Yes. Children from a more privileged background are often told to advocate for themselves and are often informed that the difference between themselves and adults isn't so big.
They are often told more often that their opinions are important, and they are taught to advocate for themselves.
In other less privileged neighborhoods, the message can often be told in reverse -- just be quiet and figure it out on your own. :(
Is Covid going to make it easier to get accepted or harder? Depends on the type of school/program you're looking for!
What type of schools/programs are you looking at?
[deleted] Not really! It sounds like you're on the right track.
I guess the question is, why was your GPA so low? Is it due to issues that my prevent you from doing well at Law School?
There's going to be a lot of work and memorization for you to do and you need to express to the L-school committee that you have addressed those issues and have what it takes to succeed.
Hi! Thank you for doing this. I hope you’re well and safe. Can you offer any advice for the personal essay - what are some things you love to see in one / some turn-offs for admissions officers? What should seniors be doing right now to increase their chances of getting into college? How do admissions officers judge ECs (in particular, no academic ECs) and is there actual merit to the concept of a “spike” in a student’s application? Will be spending a lot of time doing that in the admissions intensive, but, in short, start early and draft a lot.
Don't be afraid to get personal.
And a good "spike" can speak measures for a student.
There is a lot of what not to do that we will definitely be going over on Day 1 and Day 3 of the workshop.
I have friends working at Stanford and other private universities. All of these particular schools are down more than 50% enrollment next semester. Will we finally see an end to these overpriced universities? I do not believe so. Faculty and administrator salaries cost a lot.
It's not cheap to pay a Nobel Laureate professor -- so I see inflated tuition for the foreseeable future.
What is your first ice cream flavor? My first one was probably mint chip.
Hello! I’m an older dude, 36, who is deciding to go back to school and get my masters in education. I got my BA back in 2006, and have been in the professional world since then. But I just can’t do it any more. I teach night classes at the local art college, and feel teaching is my true calling. I’m in California, so I know things like preparatory tests are required, but beyond that, how much of a disadvantage am I at having 14 years between BA graduation and reapplication? You're at no disadvantage!
The Cal State system is full of nontraditional learners, or people who are much older than you who've decided to return after a hiatus.
You don't even need to apply to the most selective M. Ed. program. You could honestly find one online and do it. You'd just need to find a place to do your student teaching hours.
How will COVID-19 impact college admissions? This is an in-depth discussion we will be having at the workshop.
In short, selective admissions will become much more unpredictable while many financially unstable colleges will be forced to shutter their doors.
[deleted] Just a note: admissions officers don't encourage the use of "elite" when describing schools.
Each school is different and has its own strengths and weaknesses. Many people don't realize how different Cornell is from other private schools -- particularly because it is a hybrid designed school.
I'm assuming you're wanting to transfer because you can't find the opportunities you want at Cornell. As such, you should definitely consider transferring.
How do schools view part-time jobs? My son has fewer school related activities because he works but we both feel he is getting more out of working. As long as he is doing his job well, a part-time job is a great learning experience.
Do colleges really look at extenuating circumstances? I didn't get the best grades in first semester of junior year, because I was working at the government for ~20 hours a week. Because most work is done during the day, this required me to miss almost all of my science classes because of scheduling. I also couldn't quit, because my family needed the extra income. My grades in other subjects (including my intended major) remained the same, and all of these courses were AP. Will colleges take this into consideration? Of course! That's why that spot is there.
Supporting your family is a huge commitment that colleges do not take lightly. Please share this story in your applications.
I'm an international student with stanford and MIT as my top colleges.(biased towards stanford) I want to join as a physics major. I only have a few extracurriculars(2-3 major ones in total in both science and humanities) but I have devoted a lot of time to them. I have taken the SAT only once and thankfully got a decent score. Is that fine or do I have to do anything extra now? Also, since only MIT is need blind for international students, should I apply ED there instead of stanford? MIT doesn't have ED.
Even with international students, they want to see that you've excelled at your craft. So you should still be pursuing research at the collegiate level if at all possible.
You’re probably applying to a top heavy list of engineering schools if you think a couple of Bs will mess up your opportunity to go to college.
How do colleges view students that complete their last two years of high school in early college programs? These students take college-level courses at a community college with a cohort, still take SAT/ACT but do not take APs. My question is about how are such students viewed for admission? I don't care if they transfer (or not) the college credits. My concern is strictly from an admission perspective. No different from AP/IB.
I have a theory that it really isn’t the school mainly that is hard to get into but the program. Most schools fill up with big majors such as business or nursing which take majority of applicants. But let’s say a super competitive school can take someone who wants a niche major they need filling, they will more likely accept a lower standard. Is this somewhat correct? Wait. Business and Nursing are usually the most impacted, so they cannot accept many people.
UCLA Nursing, for example, has an admission rate of 2%.
But yes, students who can show true passion and dedicate to a niche field may have a better chance that a student who chooses to pursue one of the more impacted majors.
What would be some steps a international student should take to enroll into a US college? Ah! This is a complicated question that I cannot answer without knowing more of your specifics.
Definitely take the TOEFL and or SAT/ACT.
This will also depend on if you're attending an International School, American School, or just National school.
Do you think people who apply ED will be given a greater advantage due to financial commitment? Or should we wait until RD to improve our application? What’s the best use of our time right now up until applications? That is a very important discussion to be had.
Yes, students do have a significant edge if they apply ED.
You should be using this time to work on your application and to continue to cultivate your activities and intellectual curiosity.
The admissions intensive will be a great way for you to get started:

How many students do you think Northwestern or other top tier schools turn down that would have succeeded if admitted? I don't get why elite schools won't increase their class size. Just a note: Most admissions officers do not like using the word "elite" to describe colleges. They use "selective" instead.
There's just physically no space increase class size. The dorm rooms are support services are finite, so they physically cannot take on more students.
In years past, certain schools have had to book out hotels because they housed enrolled too many students.
Talk to any counselor and they will tell you that they could probably admit a class 3 or 4 times over with students who would equally be successful.
With students, instead of talking about why these schools won't admit more people, I point out the dozens of other schools that have equally amazing programs that they would do incredibly well in.
I love Northwestern! I'm actually thinking of applying ED to Medill (yay journalism). What are some tips you have for preparing a strong application if your stats aren't the best? I like to think that my extracurriculars make me stand out, but my grades are pretty average ED is the way to go if your grades aren't strong -- just make sure that your family is okay with the estimated cost of attendance.
What kind of stats do you have?
I'm assuming that you have a lot of ECs in journalism. Your goal is going to be then to highlight them and make sure your teachers and counselor highlight them.
You would be an excellent fit for the workshop because then you will have time to workshop your essays and make sure they are specifically pointed and then there will be time for me to review your application personally by the end of the week.
