What Do Colleges Look For? “We look at your GPA and test scores, and then we read between the lines. What kind of classes did you take? Are your grades getting better, declining, or are they consistent? We read your essays, and we read your recommendation letters. We also look at your activities to see what you are doing with your time. All of this information paints a picture of who you are and whether you are prepared for Seattle Pacific University.” Seattle Pacific University
What Do Colleges Look For? “Freshman applicants who meet the minimum CADRs (College Academic Distribution Requirements) and who have GPAs of 2.00 and above will receive a holistic review. Curriculum quality (including the senior year) and the personal statement play significant roles in admission outcomes for freshman applicants, no matter how high or low their GPAs and test scores.” University of Washington - Seattle
