I took the SATs, and I earned very goodJan 12 2010Biology
I took the SATs, and I earned very good grades in high school. I also did plenty of extracurriculars.
SAT: 1390 Female
I was involved in many extracurriculars in high school,Jan 12 2010Communications
I was involved in many extracurriculars in high school, including sports and honors organizations. I also held many leadership positions and held high grades. I strongly suggest staying active in many extracurriculars in high school, seeing as more and more students are applying to Marist each year, and having a great, bust background will help you stand out more.
ACT: 29 Female
In high school, I had a high GPA andJan 12 2010Business - Management and Administration
In high school, I had a high GPA and I joined many good clubs and activities. In order to get into any good college these days, it is necessary to work hard and get involved.
SAT: 1290 Female
Each year, admission to Marist becomes more and moreJan 12 2010Business - Management and Administration
Each year, admission to Marist becomes more and more competitive. A good high school GPA and relatively high standardized test scores are important factors of the application, but there are other aspects that will be considered while reviewing your application. For students that are interested in Marist and wish to attend within the next few years, I recommend taking courses in high school that are challenging, but you are capable of doing well in. For students (seniors) applying to Marist immediately, I would suggest searching for something(s) to put in your application to make you stand out among the other students. By going into detail about your specific interests and activities or writing a unique and well-written essay, it may help in the event that admission is once again highly competitive.
ACT: 29 Female
I stayed in very close contact with admissionsJan 12 2010Business - Management and Administration
I stayed in very close contact with admissions. I met my admissions counselor 1 year before applying to Marist and I kept in touch with her to let her know everything I was doing. Once I was accepted to Marist, I continued to update her on everything I was doing so she knew that even though I was already accepted into college, I did not give up on my senior year. If I could give any high school student advice about applying to any college/university it would be to keep in touch with the school and to just be yourself. Do not try and be what you think the college wants in a student because then you are at a disadvantage. Always give 100% of your effort and you will be rewarded.
