College Rep Visits
BHA is excited to welcome colleges from all around the United States!
Colleges have reasons for sending reps to high schools beyond simply advertising to prospective applicants. The reps have a chance to evaluate the high school and see if its students are a good fit for their college.
Another reason has to do with assessing “demonstrated interest,” in which an admission officer judges which students are most interested in attending their college, and admits applicants partially on that basis. This is one way to increase a college’s yield (the number of students accepted who actually enroll), which gives them a higher ranking on some scales.
