College Guidance Q & A

Larry receives numerous questions about college admissions from applicants and their families. This week he addresses a question about repeating a year in boarding school.


Q: Will applying to a boarding school as a repeat junior affect my college application?

A: Aren’t you doing this to either advance your education, improve upon a weak academic year, or add another year of sports training? Well, then, yeah - it will affect your college application, and hopefully in a positive way. However, the upward or downward trajectory depends on you.
