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)
