What does it take to get into a competitive university?
How could you make your application stronger? Why do you want to attend
such a university? What are your criteria in selecting a university?
Having read The Gatekeepers, make a 4-year plan for yourself to get into the college of your choice. Your plan should include academics, co-curricular activities, hobbies, college visits, reading etc. In short, knowing what you know about elite college admissions, how will you get in?
Make a A-G chart for yourself to plan out your high school career. See UCLA recommendations. Please post your A-G chart on your web site.
