If you really want to get into Marist besidesJan 18 2010Education
If you really want to get into Marist besides your SAT/ACT scores make sure you show some kind of leadership. There are many different opportunities to be a leader here and I would recommend going out for a position in your favorite club, student government, or residence hall.
ACT: 25 SAT: 1130 Female
The essay is probably the most important part ofJan 18 2010Communications
The essay is probably the most important part of the application, since that is how the school will first get to know who you are as a person. Marist is really good about looking at the whole person before deciding whether or not to let them in to the school. Make the essay interesting, not some generic, boring "this is why I want to go here" essay. Have the essay shed light on your personality.

We place a big emphasis on community service here, so get involved in your community. You may get some ideas for your essay that way!
SAT: 1170 Male

I kept my grades up and was in theJan 18 2010Biology
I kept my grades up and was in the top 10 of my class. I stayed active in clubs in high school and was well rounded. My SAT scores were average but I would suggest keeping them above an 1800 to get a better scholarship. They base a lot of scholarships off your score unfortunately.
To get in, I kept up my grades inJan 18 2010Communications
To get in, I kept up my grades in high school, and showed the university how involved i liked to be in activities on and off campus. They really like to see students who are involved.

I recommend students include as much as possible under their list of activities, and show that they are very versatile, and keep up their grades!
SAT: 1160 Female
