I personally worked hard in all of my coursesFeb 10 2006Electrical Engineering
I personally worked hard in all of my courses at my High School. I also participated in technical and public outreach activites. Leadership is important and the law school has a strong presence on campus. Get involved in a student organization - or even start one!

take some aps, do well on the sat, and get really involved. gw students are crazy involved and the admissions people really look for people who can continue that trend.

The average SAT is 1300 and 65% of GWJun 17 2005Other
The average SAT is 1300 and 65% of GW students rank in the top 10% of their class. The acceptance rate is 38%. GW is pretty competitive, but the admissions office will accept people with SATs much lower than a 1300 and reject some with much higher. Just work the admissions system(interviews, essays, etc.) and you will increase your chances greatly.
SAT: 1490 Male
