Getting Accepted into a Good University

universities themselves:
Zenith Prep Academy Logo Image

“Academic criteria are important to Yale’s selective admissions process, but we look at far more than test scores and grades… every applicant brings something unique to the admissions committee table.

Perhaps one application stands out because of sparkling recommendations, while another presents outstanding extracurricular talent; maybe your personality shines through a powerful written voice.

Zenith Prep Academy Logo Image

“Even perfect test scores don’t guarantee admission. Far from it: 69% of Stanford’s applicants over the past five years who scored a perfect score on the SAT were rejected… we’re also looking for evidence that this young person has a passion, that he or she will bring something to our community that is unique.

Here's the reality - in a recent admissions cycle:

Stanford accepted 
2,114 students. 
25,518 students had a 
4.0 GPA or above. 
For every 1 spot available at Stanford, there are 12  students that apply
with a 4.0+ GPA

UC Berkeley accepted 
14,429 students. 
40,706 students had a 
4.0 GPA or above. 
For every 1 spot available at Berkeley, there are ~3 students that apply
with a 4.0+ GPA

UC Davis had 41,684 students apply with a 3.7 to 4.0+ GPA
Only 25,580 of those students were admitted 
That means 16,104 students were still rejected with a competitive GPA for 
UC Davis

The Problem is...

There are more SMART students
than there is space AVAILABLE

3 FACTORS

NOW, there are 3 factors that universities never say, but are
CRITICAL for them in the admissions process.

?

FACTOR 1

?

FACTOR 2

?

FACTOR 3

These 3 factors are so powerful & important that universities are accepting students who have lower GPAs and SAT scores, but fulfill these 3 factors, OVER students with higher GPAs & SAT scores.

In fact, top universities COMMONLY reject students with perfect GPAs
and SAT scores if they don’t have these 3 factors.

No, we’re not talking about gender, race, or income.

These 3 factors are 100% within your control if you want to make sure your child has the best chance of getting into a top university.

And yes, you can even do these when your child is in the 6ᵗʰ–12ᵗʰ grade,
but the earlier they start, the more powerful it will be.

All will be explained in the webinar.

Once you’ve watched it,
if you’re ready to take the next
step toward your child getting
into the best university
possible… let’s talk

He was looking for a highly customized strategy for his daughter to build the right extracurricular profile so she’d be able to stand out from the tens of thousands of other students with similar academics.
