College admissions FAQs

Rodin's The Thinker 0111

  • Why should a Director of Admissions care about a student’s Gritter Profile? DAs use the Gritter Profile to admit students that will earn a degree in the desired time frame, enhance the college’s reputation after graduation, and contribute back to the school in time and/or money – and to avoid admitting students that won’t do those things.
  • By examining a student’s Gritter Profile, a college can measure each student against several dimensions heretofore unavailable, including values (which does a student value more: getting a correct answer or understanding the material?; does a student believe he or she has fixed talent or can achieve any desired goal) and abilities (does a student have the ability to work through mistakes and the emotional pain that often accompanies that)?
  • What is a Gritter Profile? The Gritter Profile contains KPIs (Key Performance Indicators), charts, gauges, sliders, and tables that provide college admissions officers with the information to determine whether or not that student is a fit – and how that student compares to other applicants and the student population at large.
  • How do I get a Gritter login for my admissions department? All requests for Gritter logins must come from a college email address and must be individually approved to ensure access only by authorized and appropriate personnel.
