Clark Scholars Program vs SSP
I have been accepted to both the Clark Scholars Program at Texas Tech University and SSP. This is what I’m considering right now:
? 1-on-1 mentorship
? Independent research project that can be used for competitions like Regeneron
? Lower acceptance rate (12 / 700 = ~2%) vs SSP (~180/1800 = 10%)
? Established high rate of acceptance to HYPSM (~50%), MIT in particular
Cost is not an issue for me, …Read more

Welcome USC Trojan transfer hopefuls! This is a new thread for those who will turn in their app by Feb 2022 in order to commit (fingers crossed!) to USC for fall 2022 or Spring 2023.
It is always a little sad to see last year’s thread end and say goodbye as people move on…transferring is such a long process at USC and posters can really get to know each other. But of course it’s exciting to see so many successful …Read more

Hi, my DD is a rising senior and wants to apply to highly selective academic schools. She plans to have a career in the performing arts. Her extracurriculars will demonstrate this, as will her essay. However, she is very academic, too, and definitely wants to take other classes that are not arts-related (Asian studies, psychology, etc). Her high school curriculum is VERY rigid. It will even say on the school profile that even the most ambitious students will have limited …Read more
Welcome prospective Cal Bears. It’s that time of year again as the UC application has now opened and submission starts November 1. I am @Gumbymom one of the two UC Forum Champions/Moderators.

D23 is having a difficult time finding Target schools (between 20-50% acceptance rate) for her list that will match her criteria. For a major, she thinks she will end up in a STEM, but will be applying as Undecided. We live outside of Philadelphia and she wants to go away for school (Villanova , Lehigh way too close for her).

Since EA/ED/REA reserve a large proportion for varsity students, their higher acceptance rate doesn’t really reflect a brighter picture for ‘normal’ folks. Thus I have the idea of combing through universities to look for schools that perform badly in sports (say, B or lower on niche). But then it dawned on me that if those colleges have a new chancellor who is hell-bent on improving their varsity stats, then applying for them might even be a greater mistake than not …Read more

Since UCSC has started posting their decisions, I have started the Waitlist/Appeal discussion.
Remember that for the Waitlist, the # admitted varies from year to year.
Once all waitlist activities have concluded, students not offered admission from the waitlist will receive a final decision and may submit an appeal at that time. In addition, there is no appeal to be invited to join or be admitted from the waitlist.
Number of applicants offered waitlist: 19170
Number of applicants opting …

Rising Senior here looking for ways to strengthen my application. I found my theme or “spike” a little late which is music and biology. I’m other words I want to mix the 2 subjects.

What can I do now …Read more
