    @margueriteburtzlaff Wow, those are great stats and athletic accomplishments. Sorry to hear your daughter is having a challenging admission season. I'm curious why she wasn't recruited for volleyball since she's one of the best in Texas? There's a girl at my daughter's high school who has already been recruited by Dartmouth as a sophomore based on volleyball.

    @margueriteburtzlaff I don't know that she could've done anything. It makes no sense whatsoever. At least she has some amazing options she and you should be proud of.
  • margueriteburtzlaffmargueriteburtzlaff Registered User Posts: 6 New Member
    Thanks, I agree her profile is as competitive as most, which is why it's so frustrating. On volleyball, she could have committed but she wants neuroscience or bioengineering, and would like to be free to focus on academics.
  • sbjdorlosbjdorlo Registered User Posts: 5,264 Senior Member
    Occidental? Their announcement didn't have an admit rate.
  • SAYSAY Registered User Posts: 945 Member
    marguerite all state at any sports means next to nothing if you don't use it as a recruited athlete. Many girls use it and quit after one season but then are in an IVY. It's far too competitive to think GPA's and stats will be enough. UVA and NC OOS are no surprise. Good luck on Vandy.

    Do a lot of highly qualified students from your public high school apply to the same schools? One of the more subtle factors to consider is that many colleges do not want a large cohort from one high school. They want a geographic diversity of student and seem to 'cap' admitted students at a proportional fraction of total applicants. In other words, if the average admit rate nationally is 10%, and 100 students from your high school apply, only 8-16 will be admitted even if 50 are highly qualified. This 'rule of thumb' appears to apply to public high schools but not to private schools or to magnet schools.

    If you are wondering why you received a 'no', look at the size of pool of strong applicants from your school

    @margueriteburtzlaff W&M notifies around March 31. My kid has 1560SAT, APPhysics& BCCalc +other APs, Eagle Scout, Co-captain of his team, job, blah blah blah -- applied to zero ivies and nowhere too crazy hard but one reach, yet rejected almost everywhere. Maybe we should have hired a consultant to massage his essay and make him look like something else... or maybe this just all starts to feels a little silly, or cultish -or both. He's going to college. YAY

    Wow. 13% for USC. Ouch.
  • ClassOf2018PClassOf2018P Registered User Posts: 24 Junior Member
    As a Californian who has witnessed USC's rise over the past couple of decades, I'm in disbelief at this stat on its blog: "34% of admits have perfect un-weighted GPAs of 4.0; another 10% earned only one B in high school".

    I'm truly worried for all high achieving students who have to compete in this environment. So much for a kinder, gentler college admissions process that everyone seems to have wanted a couple of years ago?!
  • ClassOf2018PClassOf2018P Registered User Posts: 24 Junior Member
    @wwjjdo94 I couldn't agree more with you more. While my D ultimately had a great outcome, so many parts of this process had her (and us) completely stumped and demoralized.

    @ClassOf2018P And, if perfect 4.0s is something USC is looking for, it really puts high schools at a disadvantage if they pride themselves on grading hard.
  • dragonmom3dragonmom3 Registered User Posts: 421 Member
    At my kids' school an A- is considered very, very, good in an honors or AP class...there goes the 4.0...
