I’m sure that the first edition of my book The Complete Guide to University of California Admissions had been well received.
It is fact based, data rich and very specific to the University of California.
All of the valuable feedback I have received from students and parents has made the next edition even better, including a bunch of additional information added in response to specific feedback received. Whenever ranking fourth overall, uC Berkeley is the world’s top public university according tothe ARWU 2015. UCLA is the second top public university followed by UC San Diego as third and UC San Francisco as fifth. Competition to get into University of California Schools is tougher than ever. I’d say in case those areas read extra credit instead of optional students would fill them in.
Students polish their personal statements to perfection after that, rush through the short answer sections for extracurricular, awards, and work sections.
Far as they are labeled optional. Nevertheless, I foresee welltodo private high schools setting up meetings beginning freshman year, for students to look through all of their work and talk with scores of private counselors about what must go in their portfolio, As for the portfolio locker developed by CollegeNET in partnership with the Coalition. That is interesting right? If this takes off CollegeNET going to be sitting on an enormous pile of valuable data. I know that the students of private high schools will have beautiful, polished portfolios. And now here’s a question. Local public school students with counselor to student ratio of 500 1?
Top bet for admission to many private schools is through the Early Notification admission choices that many Ivy League schools offer. Single Choice Early Action, Early Action and Early Decision all offer a higher chance for admission than Regular Decision. Dougherty, in the process of writing a totally new book that covers all California Colleges, will soon be launching The Complete Guide to University of California Admissions for 2016.Obsessed with numbers and data about University of California admissions, friends dubbed Suzanne Dougherty a walking encyclopedia of UC statistics. Her enthusiasm and passion for helping students make her a great match for her role as Independent Academic Advisor.
I’m sure that the decisions that lock in students early, are designed for those who do not need to weigh all financial aid options before selecting a school. UC for sticking with one fair, single choice of regular decision. Only one place it appears is in the scholarship section of the application. Furthermore, revealing your Ethnicity, National Origin or Religion is entirely optional on the UC Application, unlike the Common Application. Needless to say, use rankings as a ‘third party’ gauge of which school is worth your investment, identical way colleges use standardized tests as a thirdparty measure of a student’s college preparedness. Limited time combined with the UCs prevalent promotion of the bare minimum requirements have left many students and parents perplexed about their true chances for admission. Most students do not have enough time while racing through high school to also educate themselves about every schools selectivity.
Did they accurately predict their chance for admission? Every year California students are ‘brokenhearted’ over rejections from the top UC campuses. Therefore in case a letter you receive about a summer program starts off with Congratulations!
It’s a honor.
You are nominated!
Warning, do not fall for heavily marketed, just like the National Young Leaders Conference. Think of the summer as a time to explore new interests, develop skills or pursue an area of passion.

Eventually, instead, here goes a list of some reputable programs, a lot of very selective. Applications usually open at the start of the New Year for summer. Known what follows are just a handful of current rankings.
