Someone posted that Mason was a backup school, because he got rejected from JMU with "a 3.2 1320 SAT (old SAT out of 1600) and a decent bit of extracurriculars." Are you serious? JMU's average SAT scores are about 1140--very average for a school that thinks it's on par with UVA--and the school's acceptance rate is over 60 percent. This post has to be from someone who is trying to make JMU look like UVA. GMU is no longer considered a backup college; it is a first-rate university, and students should be proud to be accepted at Mason.
