A common misconception is that colleges care most about applicants' SAT or ACT scores, grades, and class rank. It's not true.
Most selective colleges (57%) first look at the rigor of an applicant's high school transcript. They then look at the grades you received in your courses.
It’s important to understand the pros and cons of applying early to college so that you can make a well-informed decision. Unless specified, the pros are relevant for Early Decision and Early Action applicants, whereas the cons are relevant only for Early Decision applicants.
Spark provides customized guidance to help you get into your top-choice schools.
