Getting in wasn't very difficultDec 13 2010Other
Getting in wasn't very difficult. Personally, I have a scholarship and guaranteed admission, so I can't help much in this department. But some of my friends tell me that even the essay they wrote for admission was crappy, but they still made it in. Most of the time the people that attend here were wait-listed at UVA or William and Mary. So it's a lot easier to get in here than those schools.

For minorities especially, since the school is trying to increase its diversity, you probably have a much better chance to get in. Not being racist or anything.

I took 15 hours as a non-degreed student and then transferred in the max. To you mom's who have nothing to do now that your children are ... it could be an option worth further consideration. To you teenagers and young adults ... it's your choice. To us seniors, for me, it beat setting on my? and getting fat.

be a boy or black. this school is supposed to be hard to get into but i feel like some of the men i met failed kindergarten. If you're a girl you should have at least one ap/honors and make A's and B's with a couple of good extracurriculars
