I have a question, does the fact that you go to public or private school matter in college admissions?
I remember looking at Stanford’s stats a while ago and like 65-70% of their students were from public school. Also, the UC’s (which I know are public) have like 80%+ public h.s. students. I go to Catholic high school (all-girls) and will it be a factor at all? Or is there just a lot more public schools than private schools, so it’s obvious that more kids would be public…b/c so many colleges seem to have a majority of public h.s. kids…
My h.s. is alright but it’s not like there’s that many stellar students (there’s only 124 in my senior class - all girls), there’s probably like 6-7 people who have at least a 1400 and the highest SAT I score is a 1460. The average SAT score is probably 1200 or lower… Does this matter vs. bigger public school which obviously has a chance to have more stellar students?
<b>P.S. I’m dumb and I just realized someone else posted like the same exact topic but I can’t figure out if there’s a way to delete posts?</b>
