Smith College Admission Academics Student Life About Smith news Offices
For Parents


Smith doesn't rely solely on grades and test scores to select new students; we choose people, not statistical profiles. Just like your daughter, each Smith student has unique strengths and some weaknesses. The Admission Committee reads every part of your daughter's file and carefully considers her high school program, performance, experiences and potential for success at Smith.

Each part of the admission folder reveals another facet of your daughter's life. The admission essay shows how she thinks and writes and what she cares about. To add a personal dimension to her paper profile, we recommend campus or alumnae interviews. Smith's 24-person admission staff is here to answer any of your family's questions while selecting a college.
