Be unique and stand outMay 19 2009Other
Be unique and stand out. Don't send in CDs or picture calendars to try and stand out. Just write a good essay.
SAT: 1290 Female
I had a 3May 12 2009PreDent and Dentistry
I had a 3.9 in high school, and decent test scores. I had a really good essay, and I was up to my eyes in extracurriculars, jobs, and sports. Just be confident, have amazing credentials, and write a good essay. It helps if you know someone, too. Many people I know are less than mediocre students, but their grandfather's grandfather went here, yadda yadda yadda, and they got in.
ACT: 29 SAT: 1800 Female
If you're looking to get in, the best adviceMay 11 2009Business - Management and Administration
If you're looking to get in, the best advice for any college is that they're not looking for well rounded students, rather a well rounded class. The ideal student would be...cone shaped? Pretty good in general, with one outstanding point. My grades were all over the place; I had everything from an F and D's to straight A's depending on year. My test scores were good but not exceptional (1340 SAT, 30 ACT), and I was in about 3 serious extra curricular activities. 0 sports. My saving grace was the essay, as I'm a very good writer. (ironic, as I hate writing, and only do so when forced) I'm pretty much evidence of the fact that when Fordham says it looks at the whole person, it *means* it.
ACT: 30 SAT: 1340 Female
Maintain a high GPA in high schoolMay 11 2009Business - Management and Administration
Maintain a high GPA in high school. Take honors and AP classes. Do extracurricular activities & volunteer work. I suggest applying early action (non-binding) to get a head start.
ACT: 29 SAT: 1950 Female
