Lots of extra-curricullar activitiesAug 07 2005Computer Engineering
Lots of extra-curricullar activities. My HS record suckd to a point. But my SAT scores were kickass and I had done quite some background work related to the major I wanted to take up.
SAT: 1450 Male
To get in, i was sent a "preferred admissionApr 26 2005Business - Management and Administration
To get in, i was sent a "preferred admission." Don't ask me why I got it - I don't know. But I filled it out and was accepted. No essays, no interview.

However, I have one high school friend at the university now who had to go through the whole application and essays and got in. I had another friend who applied with the normal application and got denied. I can't really offer advice because I didn't do the essays, but...

I KNOW THAT THE ADMISSIONS DEPT. wants to hear why the ideals of the school (i.e. co-op, hands-on learning, experiencial learning, and diversity) are matches with you!
SAT: 1210 Male

At the time, my 2.90 high school avg and almost 1090 SAT's were more then enough for any of the liberal arts programs. Today, I am not sure that would cut it. My high school was one in located amoung all great Westchester County NY systems that produce some of the top high school students in the country. This helps know doubt. I also had been in a program for giveted students in Art, and was a top golfer in the state.
