Very, VERY involved in high school extracurricularsJul 24 2013Business - Management and Administration
Very, VERY involved in high school extracurriculars. Held various leadership positions in and out of school environment. Perfect GPA of 4.00. I worked hard in high school and that's what got me into the Honors College (which is a GREAT program by the way)!
ACT: 30 SAT: 2000 Female
I applied the night beforeApr 18 2013English
I applied the night before. I copy and pasted the same essay I used for all of my other schools. It's a fall-back school for a lot of people, since it has a high acceptance rate. Any school as large as this is going to have a high acceptance rate, though. Don't let that make you think it's not as credible. I thought that long ago, when I was looking at Yale and Harvard, but I've realized that there is rigor here; it's just not against every damn person you meet. Which is refreshing. And desirable. Love. Come here.
I transferred with a 3Feb 20 2013Chemistry
I transferred with a 3.7 GPA which is way above the 2.5 GPA GMU requires... I was accepted within a month of applying... That should tell you a lot lol. This school should be a backup plan, by no means should this be the number 1 school to go to if you are a bright student. To experience the college life just save your time and go to another college. GMU is just a glorified community college, nothing special. You will be wasting your time here if you want the true college life.
If you are an out-of-state student, do not evenFeb 02 2013Undecided
If you are an out-of-state student, do not even waste your time looking at this school. That's all I have to recommend.
