If you wanted to go all you need isJan 23 2009Communications
If you wanted to go all you need is higher than 1100 SAT and a 3.5-3.7 GPA and ALOT of extracurriculars.
ACT: 23 SAT: 1140 Female
People are saying they're not getting their money worthDec 15 2008Computer Engineering
People are saying they're not getting their money worth. Here is my reply, if someone thinks they're smart, then they could have applied to schools like Tech, UVA, and William and Mary. But that the fact of the matter such schools are NOT for everyone; they cannot admit every student who applies. CNU IS NOT A BAD SCHOOL AS PEOPLE DESCRIBE IT. It seems the ones who are not doing well academically are the ones who said negatibve things about CNU!
Make decent grades like a 3Dec 14 2008Chemical Engineering
Make decent grades like a 3.5 GPA and do some activities
Good extra-curricular activities (music/theatre/unique artsy things), as well asDec 02 2008Language - French/Spanish/etc.
Good extra-curricular activities (music/theatre/unique artsy things), as well as good SAT scores. If you have a high SAT score, your GPA might not have to be as high, because they are most likely looking for unique and well rounded students to excel in music and study abroad experiences.
SAT: 1310 Male
Assuming you want to go to CNUSep 25 2008Political Science
Assuming you want to go to CNU... they love numbers. Numbers are their bread and butter; they plaster them all over informational booklets and the website like trophies.

Get over a 3.4 GPA, get a solid SAT (1220+) and combine it with good essays talking about the "Welcoming campus environment, sense of community, and your commitment to service" and you'll get in, no doubt.
