If you want to go to JMU, take theNov 19 2009Education
If you want to go to JMU, take the essay seriously, because they really care about that sort of thing. I would strongly recommend that you apply to a learning community. This will give you a step up on everyone else applying to the college you want to get into (education, psychology, biology...), it will help you make friends and have study buddies because you live with people that you have classes with, and it will get you in the best dorm you can get as a freshman. Pretty much everyone who applies gets in because it's a really well kept secret- just write the essays and you're good. Whatever you do, don't ask to live in Lakeside. Those are the WORST dorms you could have, especially Eagle, which is so tall that the ROTC program repels off of it. And it has no A/C! JMU isn't too hard to get into academically, just don't let your grades slip second semester senior year after you've gotten in.

I actually started from a community college and thenApr 22 2009Journalism
I actually started from a community college and then transfered to JMU during the spring semester. My grades in high school was not that good to even get into any school. It does not seem to be hard to get into this school if you are a transfer student with a great GPA and took some challenging courses in your community college and earn mostly A's and B's. It's harder to get up here if you are a high school student.
Apparently challenging this Fall 2009! Good luck!Apr 05 2009Biology
