Understanding Holistic Admissions

Sit back, grab a cup of joe and relax with UCEazy co-founder & CEO Vinnie Gupta and UCEazy VP of Customer Success & Enrollment Dennis Yan. During this 15-minute video, the two explain the importance of holistic admissions and how it impacts students as they apply to colleges. In short, a holistic approach is when college admission officers at universities seek to understand the “unique” student beyond simply looking at their GPA and test scores. Dennis compares the college admissions to the process of applying and interviewing for a corporate job. He also provides step-by-step guidance on the holistic college admissions process based on his extensive college admissions position experience.
