Nothing.Feb 16 2012Undecided
Nothing. It is like a community college admission process. If you are breathing...they will take you.
SAT: 1090 Female
To get into this university cover the basics (goodOct 05 2011Sociology
To get into this university cover the basics (good grades) and show an interest in leadership. The presidential leadership program is a big part of this school. If you get into the program (about 1/3 of freshman class are in it)you get priority registration but some volunteer hours are required. But its worth the scholarship! If you can try and get into the honors program, it waives the liberal learning courses!
SAT: 1830 Female
This year our average was between a 3Jul 10 2011Biology
This year our average was between a 3.7 ad 4.2. I was on the lower end of average with a GP of 3.72 and an SAT of 1710 however I held more than one leadership position at my school and I did two sports (volleyball and soccer) and i got in. If you are competetive then go for their presidential leadership program! ALL PLP STUDENTS GET THE BEST STUFF (first pick classes included). Im in it however you do serious work and you have a required amount of volunteer hours every year your in the program but you get a good scholarship from it and if you look to join while applying to the school then you get good points toward getting accepted because it shows your ambitious.
SAT: 1710 Female
First, look elsewhereJul 05 2011Biology
First, look elsewhere. Second if you want CNU, good grades in high school and rich family that will donate to Paul Trible University and pay for your college so you dont have massive amounts of loans when you get out and have no job, because CNU is as expensive as some better known colleges and universities that have more money to give you to come there.
SAT: 1200 Male
Have a strong GPA and SAT scoreJun 16 2011Biology
Have a strong GPA and SAT score. Write strong essays, and perhaps request an interview.
