We review applications holistically, and students are evaluated based on every section of the application. No single factor is decisive. Grades, curriculum, standardized test scores (if taken), financial need and other socioeconomic factors, recommendations, School Report, activities (including home or family responsibilities), and essay responses are the most heavily weighted factors. Due to the volume of applications that we receive, QuestBridge cannot comment on individual application decisions. For more information, please see Who Should Apply.
