Does choosing a certain major lesson your chances of admission?
I wrote my personal statement on neuroscience, but I applied as a Philosophy major to UNLV. UNLV doesn't have a Neuroscience major, but they have it as a minor. Did I lesson my chance of admission to UNLV because of my personal statement and major choice?
Does one bad grade like a 80 on my transcript affect my chances with top tier colleges?
I have been freaking out lately due to the constant drop in my AP US History quiz grades. Except for this class, I have excelled in my other classes. Additionally, I have never gotten a grade below 90 before and my overachieving mind hopes to find some reassurance from college counselors and admission experts. #college #college-admissions #college-bound #admissions-counseling
How much does the parental contribution increase for the colleges I'll mention if I try to pay it all off by scholarships?
I heard from the Standford admission office that if you try to pay off all the parental contribution through scholarships, they reduce your need based financial aid and increase your parental contribution. How much do they increase it by? Do they also do this for MIT, UCSD, UC Berkeley, UCLA, Caltech, University of Chicago, and University of Nevada? #financial-planning #admissions-counseling #college-admission

I studied mostly in Brazil in highschool, and my grades were around 60-70%, would this seriously hurt my GPA?
I am asking this because I am afraid that my GPA would really hurt my chances of getting accepted to college. Moreover, I took my 10th grade in US and had a GPA of 3.15 in Montverde Academy, and in my 12th grade I attended the American School of my hometown with a GPA of 2.87 (3rd quarter), however it is improving as this low GPA occurred to some screwups with deadlines of important assignments. Also I had a SAT score of 1710. #college #college-admissions #admissions-counseling
In what fields is a master's degree necessary?
Hi. My name is Lauren and I am about to enter my freshman year of college. I am going in #undecided on my major during my first year in order to gain a liberal arts knowledge with a variety of classes. Someone told me that back a couple of decades, a college degree almost guaranteed you a job. Now that more people are going to college (which is great), the market is saturated in a way. Some people are going ahead and getting more than a bachelor's degree. I wish I could ask when it is required towards a special field but I simply do not have a field picked out yet. My question is would you hire a college graduate in around four years without a master's degree? Thank you! #business #admissions-counseling
