A Personalized Admission Decision

We are looking for students who are "Mills women"—students who are curious, passionate, and diverse (in background and interests) with the potential to succeed in a challenging academic environment.

Because Mills takes an individualized approach to education, we examine student applications holistically, weighing grades and test scores heavily, but also taking into account students' interests, leadership records, community involvement, and their desire to grow intellectually and personally.

In other words, we read each and every essay. And we encourage students to set up an interview with one of our admission counselors so we can get to know them and they can get to know us.
