Only 15 Minutes

It takes only 15 minutes for total strangers to decide your future.

Shocking as it might seem, the process involved in deciding whether you get into a certain college–or not–takes only minutes by a committee.

Not only that, the process is highly subjective. Things you wouldn’t think should matter often do. Besides GPA, the difficulty of classes taken, a well written essay and your extracurricular activities, a candidates gender, state of origin and race, play a large part in the process. And believe it or not, GPA isn’t always at the top of the list as most candidates think. Well-rounded students are usually more desirable than those totally focused on academics.
