It's getting harder to get into JMUMar 22 2006Biology
It's getting harder to get into JMU...However it's still not extremely difficult. Maintain above a 3.0 GPA, get about 1100 on your SATS (not sure what that converts to with the new testing format), be active in highschool and you'll get in. I got early action with a 3.5, 1220 on my boards..I wasn't extremely active in clubs, but I did do a lot of community service. Also, being out of state helps. I know many people who have gotten in out of state with some below average statistics.
