Non-Finalists

If you are not selected as a Finalist, we want to emphasize that this is not an indication of your chances of admission to one of our college partners. The QuestBridge Finalist selection process requires consideration of many factors - both academic and financial - and therefore the particular circumstances in which you were not made a Finalist may not have any final bearing on where you will ultimately be admitted. Many exceptional Non-Finalists are still admitted to excellent colleges, including our college partners.

It does, however, signify that there may be limited options for you in continuing to apply through QuestBridge. The main difference is that as a Non-Finalist, you are not able to participate in the Match. Because Non-Finalists cannot be considered for the Match, they are free to apply to any college for early admission.

Non-Finalist requirements will be updated in fall 2024. 

Applying Regular Decision

For the college partners that will accept the QuestBridge application in lieu of the Common App or Coalition Application, we encourage you to consider applying through QuestBridge Regular Decision. The QuestBridge Regular Decision Form will be available on your Manage page from November 3 through December 10. As a Non-Finalist, you may need to submit application fees or additional requirements to each college.

    If you choose to use your QuestBridge application and did not previously submit a Supplement, you must do so.

If you choose to use your QuestBridge application and already completed a Supplement, there is no further action to take.

Check out our Essay Writing Advice.

    If choosing the Common Application, select “Regular Decision” as the admission round.
  • Caltech requires two teacher evaluations: one from a Humanities or Social Science teacher AND one from a Math or Science teacher.

    Caltech recommends requesting letters from teachers who taught you in your final two years of high school, who know you well, and can speak knowledgeably about your skills and performance in their classroom. Caltech would like your humanities or social science teacher to comment on your writing skills, so be sure to ask a teacher from a class with a significant writing component. Examples of classes that meet Caltech's requirements for teacher evaluations are available here.
    • If a student applies through the QuestBridge Application, Caltech will consider the teacher evaluations that were sent from QuestBridge, but those must meet Caltech's requirements
    • If a student applies through the Common App, Caltech prefers teacher evaluations to be submitted through this platform. Only if this is not possible, recommenders may email their letters directly to Caltech's office at [email protected]. Emailed letters must include the applicant’s full name and date of birth. Caltech does not accept teacher evaluations submitted by applicants. Recommenders are welcome to check out our writing advice page.

    • Penn will not require applicants to submit the SAT or ACT for the 2023-24 application cycle. This applies to first-year and transfer applicants. Applicants who do not submit SAT or ACT scores will not be at a disadvantage in the admissions process. Students who are able to take the SAT or ACT and wish to report them may continue with that plan.
    • Applicants may self-report their SAT or ACT scores using the QuestBridge application. If an applicant submits scores from both the SAT and the ACT, Penn will pay attention to the higher score from either test. Penn reserves the right to rescind admissions in the case of applicant misrepresentation including discrepancies between self-reported and official test scores.
    • For international applicants for whom English is not the native language and for whom English was not the primary language of instruction for the duration of high school, Penn continues to require testing that demonstrates English-language proficiency. For Penn, students should take one of the following: the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) administered by the Educational Testing Service, the International English Language Testing System (IELTS), or the DUOLINGO English Test. Visit Penn's website for additional details.
