How to Successfully Apply to the UC's, Part II

Challenge yourself, do what you love, and write distinctive essays. Get noticed.

Congratulations to our latest class of students who've been accepted to Stanford, UCB, Pitzer, UCSB, and other top universities.

Given the current admissions issues, now is the perfect time to talk with students about the value of integrity and hard work. Remind students that college applications stand out by demonstrating honesty, a growth mind-set, and a genuine interest in learning. 

More specifically:

1.  Take the highest level of math possible.  Students explain why.

2.  Embrace challenge.

3.  Write engaging, personal UC Essays.

Enroll in our UC App Boot Camp (four days) and complete all essays

this summer. Contact us for registration information.

5.  Apply to the right UC campus.

Did you know that Riverside has the largest UC undergrad business program?

*Use these guides as information and not as a predictor of your chance for admission.
