A student should be well-rounded when applying for MaristJan 15 2010PreMed and Medical
A student should be well-rounded when applying for Marist. It isn't only a GPA that will get a student into the school: extracurriculars, community service, appplication, and grades all contribute to the admissions process. The students need to be competitive because the number of applications continues to rise and a relatively small percentage is accepted. Personally, when filling out the application, I was myself. Marist is looking for a diverse group of students to touch every aspect of life. Students shouldn't worry about if they will get in or not because if they have the something to contribute and have the qualities to succeed they should be more than fine during the college application process.

I recommend going to visit the campus several times. Talk to admissions officers, students, and faculty. Cureent tudents will tell you both the pros and cons of the school and really help you decide if it is the right school for you.

In order to get into Marist, I did whatJan 14 2010English
In order to get into Marist, I did what most high school students do: worked on getting good grades and tried to show a lot of enthusiasm toward the college (i.e college visit, e-mail etc.)
Proofread your essay a million times and makes sureJan 14 2010Other
Proofread your essay a million times and makes sure at least three different people read it. I think this applies to all schools, but don't underestimate the power of proper grammar, organization, and conclusion paragraph. I read the essays of my friends and a few small changes took the essays from so-so to interesting. Marist doesn't do interviews, so really view the essay as important and a way to make yourself stand out.
ACT: 31 Female
I would recommend that students who wish to comeJan 14 2010Communications
I would recommend that students who wish to come to Marist contact our Admissions office! We have a friendly and extremely helpful staff that love to see students who are excited about Marist. If you're really serious about coming here, it doesn't hurt at all to just stop in on your visit and just sit down with an admissions office--it's a small gesture that can mean a lot. They can help you figure out answers to your pressing questions as well as guide you.
