Where Should My Student Apply?
If a student is applying to a 4-year university, we recommend applying to 1-2 schools in each of the following categories:
Safety = your academic credentials fall WELL above the average range for freshman applying. Still, there are no guarantees.
Match = your credentials are at or exceed the average range for freshman applying. It’s a good, competitive match for you.
Dream School Reach = your credential falls short of the average range for freshman applying. It’s a long shot you will get in…
