I had a solid GPA (3Jan 26 2011Communications
I had a solid GPA (3.7 unweighted) and a fairly high SAT score. I think the essay is an important component, because it allows Elon to really see who you are as a person. Extracurriculars are a good plus; I was involved in Honors Society in high school and did a lot of arts clubs and such. It also helped that I had a really great teacher recommendation, although I wouldn't depend on that so much. I think grades and extracurriculars are what stand out the strongest for an Elon candidate.
About 600s on each section of your SAT andOct 20 2010Business - Management and Administration
About 600s on each section of your SAT and good grades. If you don't have these and still want to go, I'd recommend early decision. They take a lot of applicants that way.

I was originally on the waitlist for this schoolSep 25 2010Political Science
I was originally on the waitlist for this school which is ridiculous considering I went to a very challenging high school and had a 3.98 GPA. I was involved in many extracurricular activities and help two leadership positions. I was shocked to learn that I had not immediately been admitted into the school and the only reason I can think of for this is that I only received a 28 on my ACT. But I am pretty sure that is the average if not above average score here.

If you want to get accepted from the everJun 14 2010Communications
If you want to get accepted from the ever increasing competitive pool of Elon applicants then you need to go to every admissions event possible, go on multiple tours, attend open houses and meet with your state's admissions counselor. Elon is huge on community service so many sure you have plenty of it on your application or in your essay. They like well rounded students -- not just the book smart ones. They want to see that you have an extreme interest in the school and in your community.
