Take your application seriously, this is not an easyJun 07 2005Other
Take your application seriously, this is not an easy school to get into and its nearly impossible to get decent financial aid. It might be helpful to visit the departments you are interested in and meet with the professors. My experience with the music department (here and at other schools) is that if you have a bit of talent and some dedication and you show interest in the school, the director will put in a good word for you with admissions.
SAT: 1370 Female
Letters, Test Prep, Meeting, Interview, SATS 1 and 2Jun 02 2005Political Science
Letters, Test Prep, Meeting, Interview, SATS 1 and 2. Visit the school to see if it is for you it is not your traditional campus and for those that need or want that they may me dissapoited with the more cosmopolitan feel of the school. The Dorms are nice, most are former hotels.
SAT: 1480 Female
Don't believe posts about this school being that easyApr 06 2005Undecided
Don't believe posts about this school being that easy to get into. I had several friends that applied with 1300-1330 SAT's, 3.8-4.0 weighted GPA and they were flat-out rejected. I think class rank, number of AP's, and definitely visit for an interview (or request interview with a rep in your area).
SAT: 1300 Female
