3 Things to contemplate about the college process as you hibernate this winter:
- The Shift from Pre-Professional Paths to Computer Science
- Popularity of Early Decision Continues to Grow
- The Changing Landscape of Colleges Below the Top Tier Schools
You have heard the story about the valedictorian that didn’t get into some, or even all, of their schools. If "the best of the best" can’t make it, what about your daughter (or son) who is not the valedictorian? “What do they want from these kids?, I wouldn’t get into my school if I applied today! This whole college admissions process stinks!” These are just a few rants that you might offer to whoever is within earshot.
Demonstrated interest means different things to different colleges, but it generally shows how interested a student is in attending a particular college and gauges how likely they are to enroll there.. After the transcript, SAT/ACT scores, student resume, and college application essays, the next most important student attribute is how well they have demonstrated their interest in a school.
