With a near perfect grade point average and SAT scores, would I be guaranteed admission to the colleges to which I apply?
A. There are never any guarantees in college admissions. Each year we hear that some of the highly selective colleges could have filled their classes with valedictorians or students with perfect SAT scores. About ten or fifteen years ago, that was exactly the way it was, but with the exception of state universities or less selective colleges, that’s not how it is today. Besides your grades and standardized test scores, the rest of the application needs to tell a story of your talents and passions and how, if accepted, you will be an asset at a particular college.
