did what the application said, never even did an interview and still got in. i recommend students stay in highschool and fill out the application. don't bother doing the early decision, if you are of average intelligence you will get in. this school is pretty easy to get into, don't stress. Also, forget about your SAT score; its no big deal; besides if you can't get at least a 1200 you have some serious learning and or mental problems.

A lot of community service, because its very important at this school as well as student leadership in high school. The acceptance rate at George Washington is drastically decreasing every year, two years ago they were accepting neary 55% of applicants and this year, for my class (2007) the acceptance rate had fallen to 39%.
