Admissions Advice

I don't see the school I'm applying to, how can it be added?

I graduated high school in 2009 and I had put college on the back burner after my mom suffered a terrible car accident. I will be applying to Schreiner University in Kerrville Texas next Fall but this school doesn't show up on the school list. Is there a way to add this school? What should I do?

Only about 15% of the colleges in the US are part of the CV data sets and they are always adding new colleges but mostly competitive to elite colleges as they pop up on the radar.

Therefore I briefly researched Schreiner and you need to have a GPA of 3.25 and evidence of doing some quality extracurriculars when you attended and work in your community. In the past, the avg GPA was 3.6 so they have eased up the GPA levels to permit more applicants to attend. Their most recent acceptance rate is 91% so 9 out of 10 people get accepted into this college. That's certainly a plus.

From the Schreiner Website for this upcoming applications cycle:

For First-time Freshmen, admission criteria will include:

High School GPA of 3.25 or higher.

Qualitative evaluation of application and admissions packet to assess student’s involvement in high school and community.

Students who do not meet the minimum GPA requirement may be asked for additional documents to be reviewed by the admission committee for an admission decision. Students will be notified if additional documents are requested and have one month to submit those additional documents

Hope this information is helpful and hope you get to complete your college education there.
