What are some factors colleges look at in college admissions?
The National Association for College Admissions Counseling annually surveys colleges/universities to determine what has considerable, moderate, limited, or no importance in making an admissions decision on any particular applicant. Results from 2011 (latest year available) are found here, along with additional information: http://nacacnet.org/studentinfo/articles/Pages/Factors-in-the-Admission-Decision.aspx
What grades/ACT scores do you need to get in to college?
Here are some EXAMPLE average GPA's/ACT's of accepted students (overall, not just ZB). These are what the average accepted student had, not to be confused with a minimum (unless stated) or maximum. Most deadlines for applications are in the 1st half of senior year and so transcripts will NOT have senior year grades on them, only 9th, 10th, and 11th grades. The GPA will also be cumulative, or ALL semesters averaged together.
