Factors in the Admission Decision


Factors based on
the 2010 edition of
the State of College Admissions


Consistent with past years, the most important factors that colleges consider are, in order, the grades in college prep classes, the strength of the curriculum and the standardized test scores.  The percent of colleges that view grades in college prep courses as considerably important has risen from 76% to 87% since 2006.  The take away is that grades in college prep courses are more important than ever.

Here are some of the other factors that colleges consider of considerable important including the percent of colleges that consider each factor important.

Grades in all courses            46%

Essay                                26%

Class Rank                          16%

Counselor Recommendation   17%

Demonstrated Interest          21%

Teacher Recommendation       17%

All other factors were considered of considerable important by fewer than 10% of colleges.

Class rank is of considerable less importance over the years as more and more colleges discontinue the ranking of students. On the other hand, demonstrated interest was of considerable importance by only 7% of colleges in 2003 but has been over 20% in recent years

1. grades in college preparatory courses,
2. strength of curriculum,
3. standardized admission test scores (SAT/ACT), and
4. overall high school grade point average (GPA).
