How to find my graduating class size?

Hey! I noticed some college apps require entering my graduating class size, but my school doesn't provide this info. Any suggestions on how to find this out or estimate it accurately? Thanks!

Hello! It's quite common for students to be unsure about their graduating class size. Here are a few suggestions to help you find this information accurately:

1. Contact your school counselor or a school administrator: They should be able to provide you with the most up-to-date and accurate information about your graduating class size.

2. Check your high school transcript: Sometimes, the class size or class rank is mentioned on your transcript. It's worth taking a look!

3. School's website or profile: Your school might have this information listed on its website or student profile. Search for a school profile, data sheets, or annual reports where the class size might be mentioned.

4. Consult a recent yearbook: Yearbooks usually have senior class photos and lists. Although the number might fluctuate slightly from year to year, it should give you a fairly good estimate.

5. Use historical data: If you have access to class sizes from other graduating years, you might be able to make an educated guess or estimate based on those numbers.

Remember to use the most accurate and up-to-date information available. If you have to estimate, make sure to explain that you are providing an estimate in your application, so colleges are aware. Good luck with your college applications!
