My son was a recently sent a acceptance email for this summer Summer Seminar 2017. He was offered two class dates. He picked the first one. His GPA is 3.4 unweighted. His first stab at the SAT in December? or November? was in the 1100's. He is currently taking a prep course on the SAT which I believe will help improve his scores. What factors might have impacted his acceptance? National Athlete, All American in a Collegiate Division One (1) Sport. Grades are important, but not everything.
