Mention me in passing to your college tutor
Check my records, check my facts
Check if I paid my income tax
Pore over everything in my c.v.
But you'll still know nothin' 'bout me”
Sting, “Nothing ‘bout Me”
At USD, we are looking to enroll students who are strong academically – students who have demonstrated they are ready to do college level work. The high school transcript tells us the most about that, and we spend a good deal of time reviewing it. We look, of course at the overall GPA, but also how a student earned those grades. We look at how much they challenged themselves, what offerings they had to choose from (not every school offers the same range of courses), and other special opportunities they may have taken advantage of.
