Grades, test scores and impressive activities alone won't get a student admitted to schools that reject almost all of their applicants. Learn Collegewise's strategies to improve a student's chances of admission at the most selective schools. Make college admissions less stressful and get straight answers about what it will really take to have a shot at getting in. Perfect for sophomores, juniors and parents. Mr. Valenzuela is the Director of College Counseling at Collegewise and was the former assistant Director of Admission at Villanova University.
