I applied, had excellent incoming grades, and attended non-mandatoryMay 23 2013Biology
I applied, had excellent incoming grades, and attended non-mandatory meetings and asked MANY questions in order to fully understand what was expected of my as a student.
Thus, I feel it is necessary to be a fully committed student, as this is not a ~skate thru~ four+ year University.
For me, getting in was pretty easy since IJan 21 2013Neuroscience/Cognitive Science
For me, getting in was pretty easy since I had good test scores and graduated high school with highest honors. I was also a legacy student, meaning several members of my family had already attended CNU, which I know has some impact on the decision of the admissions officers. As long as your GPA is over 3.0, you shouldn't have much trouble getting in.
SAT: 1250 Female
My grades were lower than what the school saidSep 21 2012Undecided
My grades were lower than what the school said they needed and my SATs weren't the best but I got in easily. I was told that the average GPAs ACTs and SATs that the school posts are BS. The school didn't have a hint that there were extenuating circumstances but getting in wasn't a problem (I was invoked in a car accident and my grandparents died during my junior and senior years in HS).
SAT: 1300 Female
To get it, I took the SAT, had a gpa of 3Jul 24 2012Business - Management and Administration
To get it, I took the SAT, had a gpa of 3.3 - 3.4, recommendation letters, and had a personal essay. Definitely be involved in extra curricular activities!!
SAT: 1600 Female
I worked my butt off, took a ton ofMar 07 2012Physics
I worked my butt off, took a ton of AP which got me out of a lot of classes, got a great score on the SAT and had a 3.6 GPA in high school. VISIT FIRST. Seriously get a feel for the place first, you'll know if it fits you or not. Then just fill out the application and good luck, they take less than half their applicants. :)
SAT: 1635 Female
