Hofstra isn't even in the US News top 100, so unless you rode the special bus to high school, you should have no problem getting in.

If you do your work you will do fineJul 26 2004Computer Science
If you do your work you will do fine. Hofstra is not an easy school. If you want to party and do no work and have no value to your degree do NOT come here you are better off going to an EASIER and LESS CHALLENGING school like St. Johns or Stony Brook or even Adelphi
SAT: 1600 Male
You should not be worried about getting into theJul 26 2004Finance
You should not be worried about getting into the Hofstra due to a high acceptance rate (40% something like that) but the hard thing is to stay here. Because the professors will challenge you and you must maintain a min GPA to stay here otherwise Hofstra will kick you out. Do not think because of the high acceptance rate at Hofstra that it’s going to be a cake walk BECUASE YOU WILL FAIL OUT. Hofstra wants you $$$$ (number one) but you're getting an education that’s equivalent to an NYU or Columbia because of the professors who teach at Hofstra have taught at reputable institutions or are successful CEO's of their own company’s and/or have taught at and gave speeches at Ivy league universities. That’s why they let a lot of people into Hofstra so they can take their money and when they fail that person has no degree but Hofstra has their money.
