Who Are You Really?
Keep in mind that who you are is much more than your GPA and test scores. In general, colleges use a holistic admissions process when they are evaluating students for acceptance. They are interested in learning about you as a whole person.
What Is Your Story?
Submit compelling college applications that tell your story and present the full impression of who you are.
You’ll want colleges to know your interests, passions, achievements, personality and character. WisePath’s Kira Fay will guide you and help you to prepare during the years leading up to the time you submit your college applications. When that time comes, who you are will be apparent in all the things you have accomplished and put your mind to. The colleges you apply to will easily be able to understand your uniquely personal story.
What Do You Enjoy?
Rather than choosing your high school activities based on what you imagine colleges may want, find what is truly important to you and pursue it. Select the high school extracurricular activities that are in alignment with who you genuinely are. That way, you will not only get the most from your high school experience, but your passion will also shine through when it’s time to apply for college.
Turn to WisePath to assist you with ideas and good choices that will set the stage for the future you aim to have such as community service opportunities, jobs and internships. Your time will be well spent on activities which suit your personal interests and allow you to accentuate your strengths.
Why Start Early?

Set yourself up for your top choices when it comes to applying to college.
Complete college applications thoroughly and effectively.
Enjoy your high school years and know that you can also enjoy the college application process.
