Seven Common Reasons Why College Applications Get Rejected

“Competitive schools will almost always have lots of ‘lookalike’ students – pools of students with essentially the same transcripts from the same state or region looking to pursue the same major or field of study,” he says. “And with more of those students than they can accept, they’re looking for differentiators to prioritize admitting some over others.”
