Got rather stellar grades in hsNov 18 2008Political Science
Got rather stellar grades in hs. Mainly A's and some B's. And a good SAT score will help. It's becoming really competitive with GMU's increased reputation, and kids from hs that would normally attend UVA or VTech are applying here more.

When I first started here in 05 pretty much anyone could get in. I only went here because I got rejected from JMU when I had a 3.2 1320 SAT (old SAT out of 1600) and a decent bit of extracurriculars. Supposedly they have gotten tougher though. But if you can get in here you can get in other places.
SAT: 1320 Male
Do decently in high school it's now harder toOct 03 2008Computer Science
Do decently in high school; it's now harder to get in than when I got in. Shoot for a 3.5 and above 650 on your math and verbal SATs.

Just applyAug 07 2008Computer Science
Just apply. They'll accept you if you have anything average. Don't listen to all the bull crap magazines and papers put out about average GPA. Mason is a fall back school for most students so the people average GPA is higher than what you really need because none of the students actually end up attending Mason. I got in with a 3.1 and 1160 SAT. I did have 6 seasons of varsity sports and some good recomendations but I'm smarter than most students there. I'm also very lazy too.
SAT: 1160 Male
