Admissions directors use a holistic approach throughout the application review process. Many factors are considered, the most important being rigor of academic program, grades in academic courses, and standardized test scores. Other factors include: ethnicity, first-generation, leadership and service, legacy, major requested, participation in Virginia Tech pipeline programs, personal statements, disciplinary record, and residency.
