Frequently Asked Questions
     

1. Will a student have an advantage if he or she applies apply during the priority filing period?

o Possibly. Applicants may have an advantage when an application is received during the priority filing period. While we are open to receive applications for all programs until January 2, admission after November 1 may be more competitive. Also, students who apply during priority filing will receive an admission decision in December; those who do not will receive an admission decision in February.

2. How are the admissions criteria weighted?

o The heaviest weight is given to objective academic criteria, i.e. grades, class rank, and test scores. Subjective factors such as extracurricular involvement and essays will not compensate for major deficits in academic credentials, but can make an impact on the admission decision both positively or negatively.

3. The application asks about activities outside the classroom. Is there a minimum number of an activity, honors, or volunteer hours you are looking for?

o No, we are not looking for a specific number of hours or types of activities. We are looking for a student who will take advantage of the many opportunities available at Illinois. Participation in extracurricular activities in high school will be a positive factor in the admission review, but not at the expense of the academic criteria.

4. Is ACT Writing required?

o No

5. Do you accept letters of recommendation?

o We do NOT accept letters of recommendation. Do not send them because we will not read or consider them. If your student has had extenuating circumstances that require your documentation, submit the Counselor Explanation form.

6. Do you use legacy in the admissions process?

o No, we do not consider if a student is a legacy during the admissions process.

7. If a student is denied his or her first choice can the student apply for another major?

o On the application, students may only apply to one program; however, they will automatically be considered for other related majors including undeclared in the Division of General Studies, if they are not selected for admission to their first choice. The review will happen automatically without any further input required from the student. If a student is denied admission, the student has already been reviewed for that second choice option.

Admission questions

When you visit a college, never be afraid to ask an admission officer detailed questions about the evaluation process. Ask them if they recalculate GPA, and if so, how. Ask them, under the recalculated scale, what kinds of GPAs generally get admitted to the college. Even when guidebooks report average GPAs, there’s no way for you to know if the school is reporting recalculated GPAs — unless you ask.
Also ask an admission officer if they use class rank in the admissions process or not.
Would I have been accepted last year? Whether or not you get into a selective college depends mainly on whom you’re competing against. Since admissions officers can’t predict the exact mix of applicants in any given year, asking about last year makes it easier for them to assess your chances.
