What do College Admissions Look For

College admissions look for a number of things such as good grades, a challenging curriculum and test scores. This will determine your academic fit. In addition, your essays will help convey your cultural and community fit within the campus. Combined, these items will help the admissions officers determine if you will succeed and thrive within their program/school. If they are convinced that you have the aptitude to do well and will contribute in a positive way to campus life, chances are you may get an acceptance letter.
