College Application Time

Hey everyone! This time between November and December is a busy time for high school seniors, because of college applications. Most applications are due at the end of November or December, so this time is the final push. I am not a senior yet, so this is a good time for me to observe the application process and get ready for next year.
College applications here in the US are very detialed. Not only do applications require a report of your grades, SAT/ACT scores, class rank, etc., they also want to know all about your outside activities like sports, music, drama, volunteer work, work experience, etc. They love to know what your interests are and makes you special. On top of all the reports they require two or three personal essays. These are to show your writing ability, along with personal creativity and spirit. There is a lot of work that goes into writing applications, but it is all worth it when you are accepted into schools! Luckily, almost all private colleges today accept the Common Application, so you can fill it out once and send it to all your schools of choice! Some schools require extra supplement essays, but basically you have a one stop place for applications.

There are over 2,000 colleges and universities and also many junior colleges here within the US so there is a place for everybody! Some colleges are much harder to get into then others and require top grades and outside activities. This is due to their ranking. Below is the URL for the list of current ranking for colleges and universities in the US.

Each college is different, yet there is a different college that is perfect for everyone!

Would you ever want to come to college in the US? Where would you want to go to college? Let me know in the comments!



  1. That's very interesting . can u give me more information SAT/ACT scores.

  2. Thanks for your comment! And sure! The ACT is scored out of 36 points, and is an average for each section, Critical Reading, Math, Writing, and Science, which are each scored out of 36 points. However there are around 60 questions in each section. In the SAT, it is scored out of 2400 points, a sum of each section, Critical Reading, Math, and Writing which are out of 800 points. On the Sat, each section is about 40 questions, but you answer three rounds of them. If you have any more questions feel free to leave another comment or check out the websites!
