We Take the Time to Know You

We’re interested in learning more about how you pursue your passions, what kind of topics or events spark your curiosity, and how you’ve built your character to become the person you are today. Here are the top things we look for in your application:

  • Your record of secondary school courses and grades, with special consideration given to accelerated courses, and depth of study in a discipline.
  • Your writing capability as indicated through your essay topic, style and presentation.
  • Recommendations and evaluations by principals, counselors, and teachers.
  • Participation in non-academic activities, personal traits, goals and motivation.
