To get into Marist I worked really hard allJan 12 2010Communications
To get into Marist I worked really hard all through high school, including my senior year. Don't slack off! Take challenging courses (honors, AP), it looks good on a transcript and you'll learn more. I took an SAT prep class to study for the SAT's and I took them multiple times but definitely take the ACT's as well because I personally think they're easier. Participate in a variety of extra-curriculars! At Marist we are a community and a family so being invoved and active is very important. Lastly, put alot of time and thought into your college essay. Don't leave it to the last minute and be sure that it reflects who you are. Marist wants the best and most well-rounded students out there so be creative!
