Samples of Admissions Officers’ Feedback
Composite sample of one admissions officer’s feedback on Student A:
This application is impressive. The Common Application essay is particularly strong and may even be one of the best I have read in quite some time (and I have read a lot). Transcripts and test scores could not be better, but the Cornells and Wakes of the world might want to see Spanish senior year. A few thoughts…
Composite sample of a third admissions officer’s feedback on Student C:
Overall, this is a solid application. Given your obvious interest in math/science, your transcript syncs with your interest. Academically, while the ACT is strong, science is the weakest section. This is something engineering schools will notice. While they are not included here, I am wondering if you took the SAT II subject tests (math 2, physics, etc.) or if you might consider taking them as they could reinforce this area.
