How should we incorporate The Snapshot in our admission process?

Character Skills Snapshot

The Snapshot is meant to complement — not replace — other materials that are part of an application. The Snapshot results can help a school learn more about a student and the applicant group as a whole — from the student’s perspective. Using The Snapshot can aid in understanding if and how the programs you offer might best serve a student, based on the student's preferences. The Snapshot is not intended to be used to determine if a student should or should not be admitted. Alongside a complete application, The Snapshot is intended to offer context to help you better understand the whole student.

The Snapshot can be helpful if a teacher recommendation is not available. It may also aid in the interview process by providing information about the student’s character traits up front.

There are a wealth of resources about using The Snapshot on our website at:

Also, there is an excellent online course that gives you all the information you need to use The Snapshot effectively in your admission process.  You can view the curriculum and enroll for free at
