they'll literally accept anyone and give no financial aid. it's great
SAT: 1800 Female
Take at least 4 AP classes, and Make a 3Oct 29 2014History/Histories (art history/etc.)
Take at least 4 AP classes, and Make a 3.4 or above (Unweighted) and you will get in for sure. Much better schools around this area if you are willing to interview (interview at Wake Forest with this gpa and rigorous courses and maybe declare early decision and you will get in there for sure.) Frankly this school is over hyped. Once you get here its a college experience unlike any other for some bad reasons.
ACT: 29 Male
Applied/Don't even tryJul 10 2014Business - Management and Administration
Applied/Don't even try. So many other great places for your money. It is way too expensive for what you actually get.
SAT: 1250 Male
Elon really cares about having students with global perspectivesJan 22 2014Biology
Elon really cares about having students with global perspectives that want to not only learn about the world around them, but also play an active role in an increasingly globalized world. I sound like I'm quoting the catalog, but this is really true. Any unique experiences that relate to other cultures or parts of the world are good to include on your application. Elon wants a body of students with diverse perspectives. Every time I get to know a fellow student, at some point I'll find out that they grew up in a foreign country or had some other significant international connection/ experience.
ACT: 28 Female
