In 2018, the majority of applicants to any particular college have similar grades, scores, and often extracurriculars. How do admissions officers choose?
Admissions officers look beyond grades and scores to the "little things," the intangibles. Applicants are differentiated through traits like intellectual curiosity and intrinsic motivation.
