Thank you for your question. I had responded to a similar question in the Forum (https://www.almamatters.io/forum/forum/alumni-forums-1/topic/requirements-for-us-colleges-3/).
I will repeat it for your benefit again.
I must say that that this question is best answered in the context of a specific College. While each US College has its own set of requirements and admission criteria, broadly they are the following:
SAT Scores - typically a range for each college
GPA - average
Coursework in High School
Marks/Grades in School Courses
Extracurriculars - what you participated in and ones you excelledThe College Applications (e.g., Common Application or Coalition Application) typically have
- Essays - depends on the college
- Letters of recommendation from School Teachers
- Letter of recommendation from CounselorIn addition, you need to Show/demonstrate interest in the desired area of study.
