Student Profile

Before you begin building your order, and using the volume estimation tool, we recommend that you acquaint yourself with the characteristics of the four Search Cycles as well as of ALL Students. The Student Profile makes this very easy—just click on one of the links below to view and download the Student Profile in MS Excel format. For example, if you want to recruit sophomores, the Student Profile will show you that the PSAT/NMSQT Search Cycle is your best source with 35% of students in that cycle identified as sophomores, the greatest number in any Search Cycle. This Student Profile summarizes student characteristics, academic performance, geographic data, college plans and preferences, and intended college majors, in each category based on current data.
