    I was hoping you could tell me my chances of getting into University of Pennsylvania.

    I have a 3.8 and 1510 SAT. I’ve taken every AP class my high school offers. I am on the swim team and track team. I really feel I’ve done everything I can. Do you think I’ve done enough to get into University of Pennsylvania?

    Hi HC and thanks for your inquiry.

    First of all, congratulate yourself on your hard work and please understand you are going to have some terrific college options.

    Regarding your chances at University of Pennsylvania, the biggest concern may be your GPA depending on the scale your school uses and whether or not it employs a weighted GPA. You’re welcome to contact us to get a more in-depth assessment of your candidacy.

    But even if we feel you’re competitive at Penn, we would still strongly encourage you to have other schools just in case you were rejected. (The school did admit only 9% of the applicants from a pretty strong pool last year!)

    Best of luck with your applications!

    Can I superscore individual components of my English score for the SAT?

    Hi Grimaz and thanks for your inquiry!

    Unfortunately, superscoring does not apply to the individual components of the English section. (As of now anyway.)

    Best of luck with your applications!

    Can I use an essay from one application for a different one?

    Can I use an essay from one application for a different one?

    Hi Vanzki and thanks for your inquiry.

    The short answer is “yes.” Just make sure the essays you submit are modified as necessary so they best address the school’s specific prompt and your specific fit at that school.

    Best of luck with your applications!

    My son is a sophomore looking to graduate after his junior year and start college a bit early. He did well on the PSAT and has good grades. What are his chances?

    Hi Andrew and thanks for your inquiry.

    The short answer is your son can be competitive if he has good grades, test scores and extracurricular activities. He may need to highlight his maturity a bit more than other applicants to ensure the schools know he will be ready to make the jump to college a year earlier than most.

    Best of luck with your applications!

    Hi David,

    My son is finishing high school in India but he is a US citizen. How will he be treated in the college application process?

    Hi David,

    My son is finishing high school in India but he is a US citizen. How will he be treated in the college application process?

    Hi and thanks for your inquiry.

    If I’m reading your question correctly, he will be considered as a US citizen and not an international applicant.

    He might have developed some good story themes by going through the Indian educational system as a US citizen, but be careful about leaning on them too heavily as there are a decent number of applicants with similar backgrounds applying to the top schools every year and it may not be as differentiating as you think.

    Best of luck with your applications!

    Hi and thanks for your inquiry.

    It looks like you have worked hard and have set yourself up for some, hopefully, great results next year. I’d encourage you to really focus as much as possible on the SAT. With a solid SAT score, you should be a strong applicant to top colleges such as the ones you listed.

    Please don’t hesitate to call us at 1.800.809.0800 to discuss your candidacy in more detail.

    I was a 3.9 through my sophomore year, but I am struggling a bit with the AP classes I now take and my GPA so now after my junior year is only 3.6. I still play two sports and remain active with clubs. What can I do to improve my chances for college next year?

    Hi and thanks for your inquiry.

    The top schools want to see that you fully challenged yourself in high school, so I encourage you to stay on the AP track. Be sure to spend some time so your AP teachers can write strong recommendations and stay involved in a few of the activities that you feel most passionate about.

    Based on what you shared, you should be very competitive with well-prepared applications.

    Best of luck with your applications!
