Questbridge process Help Please!

<p>I don't know anybody who really went through the Questbridge process and I have just a few questions.</p>

<ol>
<li>Do the colleges look at the essays that are written to become finalists for Questbridge? </li>
<li>If you do become a finalist, do you have to do all the supplements that the school requires like on the common application? </li>
<li>How do you send art supplements to each schools if you do become a finalist? </li>
<li>What are the chances of me becoming a finalist and getting into the schools on Questbridge?</li>
</ol>

<p>I’m going to be a senior this fall. I am pretty passionate about music (cello), dance (break-dancing), sports (soccer and track) and studying... I just like doing everything that's fun... Enjoy meeting new people...Parents didn't go to college so I really want to (first-generation to go to college) I want to take pre-med courses...I am almost certain and determined to go to Medical school after undergrad.</p>

<p>THANK YOU!!!!</p>

<ol>
<li><p>If you are a finalist, you pick the colleges that get your QB app. It is used by some as the main application and others as a supplement, but I would imagine they look carefully at the essays in either case. QB decides who becomes a finalist.</p></li>
<li><p>Each college has different requirements for finalists and you do have to complete the requirements for each one you apply to through QB. The requirements are listed here.
Regular</a> Decision Requirements</p></li>
<li><p>The QB [url=<a href="http://questbridge.org/for-students/ncm-faq#submit%5DFAQ%5B/url"&gt;http://questbridge.org/for-students/ncm-faq#submit]FAQ[/url&lt;/a&gt;] page is helpful for these types of questions</p></li>
</ol>

<p>Q: I am interested in submitting performance or art materials to the colleges. Do I send those to QuestBridge?</p>

<p>A: You should not send these materials to QuestBridge. Please contact the colleges that you are ranking directly to ask about the proper way to send your materials.</p>

<ol>
<li> Zero if you don't apply</li>
</ol>

<p>Thanks anyone else?</p>
