My University List

My University List


Build A Quality University List:
The best university list is one that has balance and considers criteria that satisfies both your family and personal interest (see: Criteria in Choosing a University). To find balance, its required to make a match between your university test scores, grades and course schedule (AP and Honors Courses) in relation to university entrance. For example, if your GPA and SAT Scores are higher than their mid-range 50% for incoming Freshman in the prior year than the school can be considered a Safe choice. If you are within range it is a match and below a reach. (Reach/ Match or Safety). On average  a student should have a few choices in each range with particular attention given to those that match.

We encourage students to consider a wide variety of options and then narrow these down to a quality and approved selection!

Reach or Dream School:
Incoming High School Student Profiles are Higher than What I have (GPA/SAT SCORE) or The University is Very Selective in Admission

Backup Safety:
A University or College Choice You Are 100% Certain of!
Example: a School with 90% Admission Rate or a Junior College in the USA, HK or Canada or a / Foundation Program in Australia or UK.

  • REMEMBER: THE IDEA IS TO START WITH 15-20 Schools and Narrow Them Down to 6-10 As You Carefully Consider Your Options…
