Choate Self-Assessment©

Beyond your grades and transcripts, you have a unique perspective on your own talents and goals.

Tapping into that perspective is the goal behind a process we call the Choate Self-Assessment.

Here are the basics:

  • The Choate Self-Assessment is a brief, 40-question inventory that takes about 20 minutes to complete, and can be found in our GoChoate! admission portal.
  • Each question is answered by clicking on a number on a scale – there are no essay questions.
  • The questions are designed to give you one more way to help us get to know you better.
  • We use the information from all of our applicants to understand what makes students the best fit for the programs we provide, and what makes them more likely to be successful at Choate.

The more you can share with us about your personality, aptitude, interests, and goals, the better equipped we are to see what role we should play in your educational journey.
