I had a 3Jan 21 2006Political Science
I had a 3.4 GPA, 1200 sat, and was very active in my HS community as a cheerleader, first chair vilolinist in orchestra for four years, student council and class officer for two. But after looking at all the college admissions data, and after being in college for 2.5 years, I believe that a strong academic record alone will get you into the school of your choice.
SAT: 1200 Female
GMU is much more difficult to get into nowJan 06 2006Political Science
GMU is much more difficult to get into now than it was when I applied. The application is not difficult and neither is the personal statement (I think it's only 100 words), but if you're cruising through senior year with a 2.5GPA and 1050 SAT, you're unlikely to get in.
Definitely visit the campus first and the surrounding area. I grew up here so I'm used to the busy suburbs of DC--not everyone likes it so much.
