    I was just curious as to how much weight is given to those students whose high schools consistently send their grads to top schools. I know for my school, 99% of the graduates go on to 4-year colleges, with many moving on to schools including the service academies, Ivies (one Harvard and one Princeton in the last year), and top-ranked colleges/universities. For example, my GPA is 3.93, which places me in roughly the top 5% of my 250-student class. Does the fact that my high schools grads constantly matriculate to higher universities/colleges increase my academic qualification chances at all?

    I think the fact that you used the word "matriculate" says all that needs to be said. You obviously go to a superior high school. :smile:

    A lot. Since they do not publish WPM criteria, it is impossible to know exactly how much.They also look at how well previous appointees from each particular school have fared. They keep a file on every HS in the country from which candidates have applied.

    I think the new Candidate Academic Information report which commenced last year is the online version of what they are looking for. The standard school profile is also submitted with the transcript (I think-they new CAI last year might have changed this and I haven't confirmed that they are still requesting the profile-maybe a current candidate can confirm this with their counselor).
