Questbridge Deadline Sept 28th
QuestBridge takes all of the
following factors into account when evaluating an application for the National
- Academic Achievement
- Financial Qualifications
- Personal Circumstances
We seek students who have
demonstrated a level of academic achievement that meets or exceeds the
admissions standards of our partner colleges. The academic characteristics
below are based on profiles of Finalists from
previous years, and are not strict requirements or cut-offs:
Grades and rigor of high school
curriculum: Primarily As in the most
challenging courses at your high school (usually including Honors, AP, and/or
IB level courses, if available.)
Class rank: Top 5-10% of your graduating class.
Standardized test scores: SAT (CR+M) scores above 1250; ACT composite
score above 27. We also recommend submitting any AP, IB, or SAT Subject
Test scores. Review the standardized testing requirements
for each partner college.
We also look for evidence of
strong writing ability, intellectual spark, and determination through essays
and teacher/counselor recommendations.
College Match Finalists typically
come from households earning less than $60,000 annually for a family of four,
and often less than $50,000. This is not a strict cut-off and we encourage
students who feel they have faced significant financial hardship to review
these financial details carefully to see if they may qualify.
