If you have a high enough high school GPAJan 18 2018Psychology
If you have a high enough high school GPA and demonstrate passion for your selected field of study (even if you haven't been involved in many extracurricular activities) you will likely be accepted. Likewise, if your GPA is on the lower side but you have demonstrated leadership experience and a robust social life, you will likely be accepted. Keep in mind that (in my opinion) it is NOT difficult to get into Mason. Their current acceptance rate is around 65% or 70% (they say that it is lower, like around 50%, but the numbers don't lie).
