My brother is a rising senior who hasn’t created an account here yet so I said I would write this while he gets started. He is interested in graphic design or industrial design. He has visited NC State and really enjoyed it. They spoke to him about the specific application to the design school and while he thinks he’s a match there in general, he heard it was pretty tough to get in to the design school. He will be visiting UCLA with my family while I attend orientation (admitted UCLA c/o 2026). He’s visited PSU and JMU and liked them as well. Would you kindly assist in chancing him for these majors?
Intended Major - Graphic Design/Industrial Design
4.62 GPA W/4.265 UW
No class rank given but he knows he’s in the top 25/450
SAT - 1340
Will have a total of 6 AP classes (AP Art, AP Physics, AP Gov, AP Calc are on his senior class schedule) and total of 10 honors classes upon graduation

Varsity soccer 1-4, Art Show 1-4, Unified Track 3-4, Varsity Wrestling 1-2, Key Club 1-4, NHS 3-4, CVS Cashier 2-4, Premier Club Soccer Captain 1-4
I don’t think he’s written any essays yet but based on what I’ve seen him do, they will be strong.
No cost constraints
Likely - PSU, JMU, Clemson, UGA
Match - UMD, NC State
Reach - UCLA (not sure if this becomes a match since I also attend), USC, UCSD
Thanks so much!! I will tag him once he creates an account!!
