If you are a good student, Drew is notApr 03 2011Chemistry
If you are a good student, Drew is not that hard to get into. The school is SAT optional, and for the most part, does not admit students based on athletics or legacy. Drew is mostly interested in your high school grades, difficulty of your high school courses, and your desire to be at a small liberal arts college.

The bigger issue for most students is affording Drew. The school is very expensive ($52,500 per year). Full academic scholarships no longer exist, but there are scholarships for academics, the arts, civic participation, and for minorities. Something like 97% of students receive some type of financial aid or scholarship, but be warned that the net cost (after receiving aid) for a typical student from a middle class family will $30,000 to $40,000 per year.

I emphasized all of the theater I did in high school. I think they thought I wanted to be a theater major and because Princeton Review gave them the #1 theater school spot they want to maintain that. Emphasize your individuality for sure.

My SATS were good, (though as I mentioned, they no longer require them.) My GPA from my prior institution was high as well. I also did an entrance interview because at the time I really wanted to go here. All of these things combined really help. If you really want to go here, just demonstrate your interest.
In all honesty, the University needs money and needsNov 03 2009Political Science
In all honesty, the University needs money and needs more people so they accept a lot of people that shoudnt get in. But then there are those that may not have the highest GPA and may not have been the top of thier class, but are insanley smart. The aplication process is your chance to impress people with your abilities and experience. As long as you appear unique and desirable you should be able to get in. Get solid grades and Get good scores on the SAT or ACT.
