Many colleges put a great deal of weight on student ACT/SAT test scores when considering applications. Cappex can help you see how you rank compared to students who have been accepted to Scripps College
Be careful. You have to really be sure that the school you apply to within the 5 CMC schools has the classes you are interested in. Don't buy into the line that they give you that taking classes at the five CMC colleges is easy and a great value. It is impossible to get classes at CMC if you attend another school within the group of colleges. It is an illusion. You have to really be aggressive and it is virtually impossible if you are not a Claremont McKenna Student to take classes there. Disappointing for $57,000 a year. The summer does provide opportunities that aren't there in the typical school year.» Read More
Make sure to highlight your contributions to your community as well as all of the extra-curricular activities you have participated in. Scripps admission loves to see uniqueness and not just the commonly done things. Also emphasize your passion for liberal arts and why you have chosen to attend a hidden gem like Scripps and especially, why a women's college.» Read More
Don't discount Scripps just because it is a women's college. We do have students who identify as male and Harvey Mudd, CMC, Pitzer, and Pomona are just a short walk away if you still find the need for more testosterone. Definitely plan a visit. Take a tour. Spend a night in a dorm room. Sip on a Mexican Chai from the Motley in Seal Court. Eat an orange, or a kumquat, or a loquat off a tree. Talk to students. Really, come up to any Scrippsie and ask about Scripps. We love to chat with prospies and I promise that we'll be open and honest about our experience.» Read More
In terms of admissions, Scripps generally does not take in many prospective transfer students. However, prospective first year students with strong academic transcripts and meaningful extracurricular activities are generally seriously considered for admission. I recommend being meticulous when filling out forms and supplements. Also, stellar letters of recommendation from teachers, coaches, and/or peers who know you well should help. The more interest you show in the college, the more likely you will be seriously considered for admission. If you have the option to visit Claremont, do it. If you have the option to schedule an interview, do it. Scripps offers hour-long campus tours five (sometimes six during the fall season when there is an influx of prospective students) days a week, as well as the option to schedule an â??overnightâ?? stay with a student hostess. Additionally, special events such as Preview Week (for prospective students) and Spend a Day in Our Shoes (for admitted students) are also available. Take advantage of these resources that are generally not offered at larger universities! They are a great insight into the academic, dorm, and overall social life at Scripps. A visit, especially an overnight, will help you decide whether Scripps is the right place for you. On the whole, show Scripps that you are truly a perfect fitâ?? â?? a strong young woman who will flourish in a rigorous academic and vibrant social environment.» Read More
