Applying to the Right Colleges: Reach vs. Target vs. Safety Schools

With application season quickly approaching, it’s the right time for parents and students to start putting together the list of schools to which they plan to apply. However, this can be a challenging and intimidating process. With so many possibilities out there, how do you make sure that you choose the right schools for you? And how do you make sure that you put together a school list that provides you with a realistic shot at admittance?

The Edge is here to help answer these questions and more. With many years of experience in the field of university applications and admissions, our professional team of Admissions Consultants can help guide you through this tricky—but crucial—step in the process.


During the presentation,  our Admissions Consultant, Jonathan Ault, will cover topics like:

• What to consider when creating a school list
• How teachers view students
• How to best conduct school research
• Identifying “Reach,” “Target,” and “Safety” schools
• The factors that most determine whether or not a student is likely to be admitted to a university
• How to ensure that your school list has the right range to maximise your chances of admission
