Applying to COBE Fellows


The COBE Fellows selection process is highly-competitive and application review is very thorough, but no one particular admission factor serves as the basis for acceptance into the COBE Fellows Program. 

Instead, the COBE Fellows admissions team utilizes a holistic approach in that they consider every aspect of an applicant’s application for admission, including but not limited to:  Overall GPA (3.4 recommended for competitive consideration); SAT/ACT score; Class rank; Extra-curricular activities; Application Essay; and Letters of Recommendation. 

We are seeking distinctive student leaders who are academically driven and desire an unparalleled college experience with like-minded peers.  We want you to tell us why you should be a COBE Fellow!

COBE Fellows Application Deadline

 To be considered for Priority Admissions, completed applications must be received by March 23rd, 2018
