College Timeline

Holistic Review

Many schools are moving to a “testing-optional” status this year and using a holistic review of applications. What is a “holistic review” of a college application?

  • Rigor: strong level of academic achievement demonstrated by grades
  • Taking advantage of College Prep courses (AP, CHS)
  • Taking full advantage of senior year
  • Demonstrating a positive grade trend
  • Review your college websites for school specific expectations
  • Some schools are not requiring standardized scores at all
  • Letter of Recommendations (if required by the college you're applying to)
  • College Essay/Personal Statement
