One of the best things about Marist is thatJan 12 2010Communications
One of the best things about Marist is that they care about the person you are, not just your test grades. Although I did very well in high school I was very involved in student government and on campus clubs and sports. Marist payed attention to the teacher evaluations and took note of everything I was doing around my high school campus. My advice would be: get involved and stay involved in order to develop relationships with people in authority.
ACT: 26 SAT: 1600 Female
I have always been involved in a variety ofJan 12 2010Education
I have always been involved in a variety of activities from an early age. Throughout my childhood I have been involved in many activities such as: Girl Scouts, School Choir, Dance, Varsity Cheerleading team, Yearbook Sports Editor, Gymnastics, Religious School teacher's aide, and Pop Warner junior coach. I did all of these activities while keeping up a good GPA throughout the years. I also had two jobs prior to starting college. I currently still work as a camp counselor at YMCA Capital District-Camp Nassau in Guilderland, New York. I also worked as a teacher's assistant at my temple (Beth Emeth) in Albany, New York for four years. I recommend students to get involved in a variety in activities in high school- both a part of the school and activities outside the school. Having a part-time job during high school is a great way to show time management, all while keeping up with studies. Getting into college is a hard process, so the more activities you are involved in, all while keeping up with schoolwork, shows schools that you can manage your time well in a successful manner!
Be involved in your high schoolJan 12 2010PreMed and Medical
Be involved in your high school. Go to sporting events. Be an athlete and/or a club president. Show that you are interested in something. Show that you have spirit and enthusiasm for your high school and you want to bring that to Marist.

I am a fashion merchandising major, so in orderJan 12 2010Other
I am a fashion merchandising major, so in order to get accepted into the program I had to do a project. I made a power point of a designer of my choice and spoke about what changes I would do if I were the CEO of the designers company along with other changes. I worked so hard on this project and when I was accepted into the Marist fashion program it was one of the proudest moments of my life.
Prospective students should take challenging courses and earn goodJan 12 2010Business - Management and Administration
Prospective students should take challenging courses and earn good grades in them. They need to be involve in many activities both in and out of school to show that they are interested in going the extra mile to succeed and do well. Students also need to earn good scores on their SAT/ACT to show the college their level of competitiveness with other students. The best thing students can do is work hard and be passionate about their activities.
