Are You Sure You Should Apply to the Top 15  Universities?

The Reality

Transparency in Admissions Inc. offers the most accurate online calculator for determining probabilities for admission to America’s most prestigious universities.

Admissions data make clear that, with few exceptions, only applicants falling within certain preferred groupings have reasonable chances of admission to top universities.  Preferred groupings include recruited athletes, legacy applicants, children of faculty/staff or donors, Latino/African American, first in family to attend college, genius, residence, upscale private schools, etc.

For everybody else, there is little chance of admission.

As we explain in “Why We Do It”, premier colleges and many private guidance counseling organizations encourage students and their families into believing that gaining admission is within reach.

This begs the question:  is it worth your time, effort and money to apply? Only you can decide. Nevertheless, Transparency in Admissions is here to help you make the right decision for yourself and your family.
