What does it take to get admitted to the most selective schools in the country? Stanford admitted just 4.8% of all freshmen applicants in the fall of 2016. Harvard admitted 5.3% and Columbia 6.1%. Our panel of former admissions officers will shed light on how students who get accepted to the Ivy Leagues, Stanford, Northwestern, and the rest of the nation’s most selective colleges set themselves apart from the other highly impressive applicants.
You’ll gain unique perspectives from those who made admissions decisions and we’ll also share Collegewise strategies to improve a student’s chances of admission at the most selective schools. While we don't believe that prestigious colleges are necessarily better colleges, we want students who are interested in these schools to have straight answers about what it will really take to have a shot at getting in.
