I visited CNU twice before deciding on coming hereMay 05 2010Biology
I visited CNU twice before deciding on coming here. Each time made my decision easier. The dorms, classes, and students were the main reasons for my selections. I was 5th in my high school class and scored 1380 on my SATs.
It was extremely easyApr 22 2010Psychology
It was extremely easy. You won't even have to try.
They act like they are UVA with admissionsMar 23 2010History/Histories (art history/etc.)
They act like they are UVA with admissions. I was told when I called that I would not get in with my GPA being a 2.9. Three weeks later they sent me an acceptance letter. So don't feed into the hype.
I am a Caucasian female and I applied toJan 29 2010Undecided
I am a Caucasian female and I applied to this school early (non binding) with a 3.28 GPA, (on a 5.0 scale) 1990 SAT score, and did not write an essay. I was accepted. I applied to PLP: at this point in time my GPA had risen to a 3.4. I wrote an essay about an international peace activity which I was a leader for. I was accepted. I graduated from high school with a 3.54 GPA, but by this time I had already been accepted to both PLP and the school.
Getting in was not too much of a problem for meJan 06 2010Music - Composition/Theory
Getting in was not too much of a problem for me. I was on the e-mailing list for about 2 years and they sent me a Students First application, where you would basically do early admission, yet you receive your letter in about 5 days. I had a GPA of 3.3, Combined SAT score of 1090, and an ACT score of 25. I also had an outstanding Resume and showed leadership through a job and my extra cirricular activity. Great campus and if youhave what I got, you'll have no problem! Good luck!
