90-100

Students with scores in this range are often unusually talented on a global level (Top 1%). 

They often exhibit most or all of the following:

Academics

Unusual academic talent that a school, community and even the nation has not seen in decades, perhaps in its history.  A true life of the mind, perhaps a prodigy.  Teachers and administrators rave about intellectual curiosity and impact across every classroom, lab and discussion.  The word “genius” is typically used to describe this type of student. Nationally published research with university faculty, multi-disciplinary talent, and/or global distinction in academic competitions. Usually found in the top 1% of the applicant pools at top colleges.

Extracurriculars

Stands among the top students on Earth for extracurricular accomplishments; leadership qualities that are notable in the school and extend far out into the global arena.  Examples may include Olympians, global thought-leaders, nationally and/or internationally known leaders of NGOs.  Accomplishments may have been featured by media on a very wide scale.  If admitted, this student will likely be known already by a significant portion of the student body.  Usually found in the top 0-1% of the applicant pools at top colleges.

Writing

Writing is truly excellent across the board; clearly articulates the need for a certain academic experience, introduces rich narratives and engaging descriptions in highlighting academic interests and personal stories.  Is able to explain complex theories and processes in words that both engage and educate the reader.  The reader often finds themselves “lost” in curiosity and interest in what the applicant is saying.  Utilizes diction and sentence structure at the highest levels.  Usually found in the top 5% of the applicant pools at top colleges.

Our scoring system was developed with over 30 years of combined admissions experience at private and public universities at all levels of selectivity, from Ivy League to small liberal arts and selective public admissions.  Actual results may vary.

80-89

Students with scores in this range are model students and stand out significantly (Top 5%).

They often exhibit most or all of the following:

Academics

National and state academic talent that is visible in the school and the broader community; the very top student (usually valedictorian or salutatorian) winner of multiple national-level competitions and high-scores of national-level exams.  Life-of-the-mind approach to multiple disciplines is evident.  Renowned speaker or debater.  Published research in academic journals.  Comparable already to a top undergraduate student.  Usually found in the top 5% of the applicant pools at top colleges.

Extracurriculars

Unusually strong, diverse and impactful leadership at the top of many organizations that extend into the national and/or global scale.  School community sees these students as a ‘once in a lifetime’ or ‘in many decades’ type of student in terms of leadership and visibility.  Fellow students will rally behind this student.  Examples include national debater, record-breaking athlete and team captain with multiple championships, national-level leadership in student-focused organizations.  Usually found in the top 5% of the applicant pools at top colleges.

Students with scores in this range are strong students with high community visibility (Top 10%).

They often exhibit most or all of the following:

Academics

State and some national distinctions with clear academic talent in 1-2 specific areas of study.  A student in the top 5%-10% of the class.  Curiosity and follow-through is evident in nearly every academic area.  High praise from teachers and college counselor; may have been recommended for selective summer programs which appear on student’s profile.  1-2 significant awards or achievements in the academic realm will highlight the student’s application.  Known as an academically talented student across the school and in the broader regional context.  Usually found in the top 10%-15% of the applicant pools at top colleges.

Extracurriculars

Goes above and beyond the school with state and some national level distinctions; very much seen as a leader and stand-out student in the school community through multiple student organizations and across many different areas.  Consistency is demonstrated across all four-years of high school.  Often holds regional leadership roles through notable student-focused organizations.  Students with significant and economically necessary part-time jobs during the school year will often earn this rating as well. Usually found in the top 10%-15% of the applicant pools at top colleges.

Writing

 

Very strong writing across all essays; clearly articulates academic interests and engages the reader.  Makes a “convincing” case for X college or university through balancing a narrative of their own intellectual curiosity and the ethos of the institution.  Personal writing is engaging and tells a story effectively, even if some topics are standard or common.  Usually found in the top 20-30% of the applicant pools at top colleges.

40-59

Students with scores in this range are solid students with good in-school visibility (Top 50%).

They often exhibit most or all of the following:

Academics

A solid student through-and-through, likely in the top half of the class.  Known by teachers and counselors to succeed in all or nearly all coursework, a very strong presence in class, and puts forth best effort in projects and assignments.  Intellectual curiosity surfaces in subject areas of interest.  A standard-strong academic standout.  

Extracurriculars

Excellent school-based leadership with some elements of regional or state recognition.  Consistently involved across a spectrum of student organizations; trusted and hailed as a leader by school administrators, teachers and students alike.  Consistent in most levels of involvement, may have become more involved as maturity or experience increased.  May have a part-time job on weekends or during the week to earn extra pocket change.  

Writing

 

Can either be very strong or at grade level. Very strong writing would appear across all essays; clearly articulates academic interests and engages the reader.  Capable of making a “convincing” case for X college or university through balancing a narrative of their own intellectual curiosity and the ethos of the institution.  Personal writing is engaging and tells a story effectively, even if some topics are standard or common.

20-39

Students with scores in this range show mixed achievement but strong growth potential.

They often exhibit most or all of the following:

Academics

A student with mixed or uneven achievement, likely outside the top decile but with solid performance or growth.  Transcript is often B-heavy in at least one subject area; the presence of lower grades (especially earlier in the student’s academic career) is possible.  Extenuating circumstances might be explained in the application.  Sparks of intellectual curiosity may exist but need development.  Respectful, kind yet standard praise from teachers and college counselors

Extracurriculars

Standard involvement in student clubs and organizations with either 1 significant lead, a small number of secondary leads or involvement much later in the student’s high school career.  Profiles with this rating tend to have more significant involvement starting in 11th grade.  Little indication of deeper involvement outside of the school community.

Writing

 

Writing is readable and clearly at grade-level, or at expectation for the school this student attends.  Articulation for “Why College X” is either standard or commonplace and often rehashes information found off websites or in college guidebooks. Personal writing tells a story or speaks of a process with a clear beginning, middle and end – but sometimes uses too many words (or not enough) to grip the reader effectively.  A solid, but not stand-out effort.  Writing is not error free and is sometimes not proof-read enough. 

Our scoring system was developed with over 30 years of combined admissions experience at private and public universities at all levels of selectivity, from Ivy League to small liberal arts and selective public admissions.  Actual results may vary.

0-19

Students with scores in this range would benefit from a new environment and a fresh start.

They often exhibit most or all of the following:

Academics

A student who has clearly struggled in a very demanding academic context.  Grades are often Bs or lower with little sustained upward trend, or one that is very late.  Respectful but faint academic praise from teachers and counselors. 

Extracurriculars

Little to no involvement; isolated in the school and community. 

Writing

 

Poor writing, lack of articulation, clearly rushed effort without any indication of true personality or curiosity.
