I had pretty good grades all through high schoolSep 26 2004English
I had pretty good grades all through high school. At the end of my senior year my GPA was about a 3.7 on a 4.0 scale. I got a 1210 on my SATs, and I was actively involved in volunteering and extracurricular activites at my high school. Aside from pure numbers, just try to make yourself look different than the other hundreds of applicants. Write an essay that expresses who you are as a person, and not just showing off...

Once you're in, ask for more moneyJul 19 2004Unknown
Once you're in, ask for more money. They'll give it if you take the time to put the request in writing.
Getting seemed easyJan 31 2004Psychology
getting seemed easy. My SATs were respectable but not earth shattering, and my community college gpa was a pretty average 3.3.

Also, if anyone finds this useful, I applied in really late July and recieved my admissions offer shortly there after.
SAT: 1270 Male

I got into Drew by working hard in high schoolDec 09 2003Computer Science
I got into Drew by working hard in high school. I took lots of college-level courses, and did well on the SAT's. I also was involved in sports and did many hours of community service. I was also an officer in a few clubs. This earned me a generous merit scholarship at Drew (there are more here than at most schools, which usually only focus on need-based scholarships). I recommend that most students do the same, but don't feel the need to overwork yourself, it's not worth it at all. The extra-curricular activities are probably what earned me the scholarship.
