What is a reach school?

    Colllege Kickstart defines a reach school as a school where the admit rate is less than 25% or your academic performance puts you in the bottom quartile of students from the previous year. These schools admit very selectively, so the risk is higher of being denied, even if your academic performance is strong. We recommend having at least 2 in your list to give yourself some upside.
