ACT: 30 Female
I appliedJan 24 2004Unknown
I applied. I used an essay I wrote for Princeton, and letters of recomendation I got from teachers. They are not highly selective and the chances are good of recieving a scholarship
ACT: 27 SAT: 1380 Male
Hofstra has a very leanient acceptance policyJan 17 2004Other
Hofstra has a very leanient acceptance policy. To begin we have a freshman division which means if you did not do that well on ur SATs you still have a good chance of being able to attend this school. NO KIDDING. if you got a 860 or something hofstra might actually give you a chance to go to the school. However everything does come at a price.

If I wouldnt have gotten it, I probably would have killed myself on principle...
Make it a point to call and actually speakJan 03 2004Journalism
Make it a point to call and actually speak to an advisor of the major you are interested in. do as much online research and request info packets. try to visit the campus so you know the conditions. I think so many people don't so their research and are surprisingly "shocked" to find out about how the campus isn't perfect. write a smart essay and show interest. colleges make files for you every time you request info, so they know how much you tried to learn about the school. even though a school is "easy to get into"'s probably not as easy to stay shoot high but be realistic. make sure you learn about loans if you need them...and ask ask ask questions. the more you know now, the less you will be "shocked" later. it's your future...and you plan it now so be picky, open-minded, and diligent...but always have good times. GOOD LUCK!!!
