Special information for:
The quality of students we seek will be outstanding by traditional measures (course rigor, academic achievement and test results); however, we place equal importance on personal character, creativity, risk-taking, unusual life experiences and an entrepreneurial spirit.
We encourage students to challenge themselves as much as possible academically, and to enroll in the most rigorous courses available at their schools. A strong calculus and physics foundation is essential to success at Olin College and therefore a requirement for admission.

Additionally, we encourage students to participate in extracurricular activities, engage in their local communities, and seek out enriching experiences such as research opportunities to broaden and enhance their classroom learning.
Olin students comprise a passionate and dynamic community, and we ask our applicants to describe their passions to us, both about their personal aspirations and their desire to attend Olin.
