If my student did not apply for or was not accepted for the College Prep Scholars Program, should they still apply to the National College Match?

QuestBridge -

Yes! The two programs are separate, and we review each application independently, regardless of whether a student applied to or was selected through the College Prep Scholars Program. Students’ academics can change from one application to the next. In fact, sometimes they become stronger applicants by their senior year, when they may have new standardized test scores or stronger grades, and are often enrolled in advanced classes. Similarly, sometimes family finances change. While College Prep Scholars do demonstrate the types of traits we are looking for in Finalists, we will make our decisions based solely on the application that students submit for the National College Match.
