If you are absolutely serious about getting into MaristJan 14 2010Math
If you are absolutely serious about getting into Marist College, then do everything in your power to get in. Go on as many tour sessions as you feel neccesary, visit the school, do a tour day, etc. Make sure the college knows you are very interested and make your name known for them. I believe the more school events you attend, the more the school knows that you want to be there. Colleges want students who WANT to go to thier school, not just the smartest kids available.
ACT: 24 SAT: 1200 Female
I recommend that students try to meet the requirementsJan 14 2010Video/Media
I recommend that students try to meet the requirements given on and strive to keep their gpa up. Strive to show why you are a valuable student to the Marist community in your essay, and show how committed you are to your personal activities in High School.
ACT: 28 Male
I tried every way possible to get in contactJan 13 2010Chemistry
I tried every way possible to get in contact with admissions to make sure they knew I was serious about coming to Marist and it was my first choice school. My advice to prospective students is to email and call admissions to ask questions and let them know you are interested in Marist. Also, visit the school, and take part in a shadow day. All of those things will really make you stand out from the crowd aside from your GPA, standardized test scores and extra curricular activities.
ACT: 27 SAT: 1080 Female
