The most important thing is to be genuineJan 06 2007Political Science
The most important thing is to be genuine. GW isn't looking for a kiss-up; they're looking for interesting students who will bring as much to GW as GW will bring to them. Concentrate on the essays and even though it isn't required, do an interview. My boyfriend, who was wait-listed, due to his high school GPA of 3.00 (despite a 1590 on the old SAT), did an interview and was later admitted.
SAT: 1320 Female
