High School Achievement

Performance in high school is the single most important factor in the student selection process at Penn.  However, because grading and ranking policies are different around the country and the globe, it is difficult to pinpoint one metric for a student's success in the classroom.  The most competitive applicants have pursued a rigorous program of study and achieved top grades in the context of their school.
