Common College Admission Terms

Uncategorized

If you’re not familiar with the college admissions process, it probably seems like it has a language all its own. To help you learn the lingo, here are definitions of some of the college admission terms you’re likely to come across.

Competitive College: A college with a rigorous, highly selective admissions process.

Reach School: A college where admission might be a stretch for you, based on the average GPA and test scores of accepted students and the college’s overall admission requirements.

Safety School: A college where, based on the average GPA and test scores of accepted students, you have a high likelihood of being admitted.

We recommend that you apply to at least 2 in each category.
