The Details

You can apply to A Better Chance from February 1 to April 15 in order to position yourself to gain admission to one of our Member Schools in the fall term of the following year. Students who submit a complete application on-time receive a decision in mid-June.

As part of this process, you must create an online account in order to review and submit all required application components by the application deadline. A Better Chance thoroughly reviews completed applications in their entirety in order to select students we believe will thrive at one of our academically rigorous Member Schools.

The ideal A Better Chance candidate should consistently demonstrate academic excellence, actively participate in extracurricular activities, and be of upstanding character.
