I had excellent ACT scores (top 98%ile) and an unweighted GPA of 93. I also did tons of community service and was involved in many activities in high school. I recommend you do the same and visit the college often and harass the admissions staff until they know you well.

Although being a minority MAY account for a particularAug 14 2008Art & Design Department
Although being a minority MAY account for a particular percentage of why we do get into some schools, I can definitely tell you now that it's not the ultimate reason. I went to a prestigeous boarding school where the academics were tough and involvement was a part of the curriculum. I can easily say that I was highly involved in sports, the leadership program as well as extracurricular activties every year. My grades were fine and all our classes were always a little harder. My SAT scores weren't the greatest due to other demands of workload, but were definitely sufficient enough to get me into a fairly good school. On top of all this, I had an excellent portfolio for the fashion department. When I came to visit Marist, I was told that my name had been mentioned among faculty quite a few times - and having a good essay will ALWAYS help. ALL colleges love good essays & that's the truth. They all love hearing your voice apart from what your scores say or your grades say or even your extracurriculars demonstrate. In any school, you must demand your place by showing them what you can do - not just by telling them.

Otherwise your chances of ever getting into your #1 will always be slim!
SAT: 1560 Female
