I got a 1450 on my SATs, top 10Feb 13 2005PreMed and Medical
I got a 1450 on my SATs, top 10 percent of my class, cross country skiing, running, Key Club, volunteering at hostpial, debate club, spanishc lub, student senate, frisbee group, lots of APS, SAT IIs.

I got a presidential, but I chose to not go to this school because the administration is very sneaky in their scholarships (minumum of 3.5 gpa MOST STUDENTS DO NOT GET THIS)

Do not go here. However, if you do, make sure you visit the campus and get your own personal opinion from the students instead of the administartion which is very biased (look at the number of responses on this college page for example)

However, if you do decide to apply here, a low SAT score of 1000, low GPA of like 3.0/4.0 should get you in. You don't need much to get into here. However, make sure you work hard in college wherever you go, because that will decide the rest of your future (and why i went to a different college ebcause this place is horrible academically).

Apply earlyOct 31 2004Psychology
Apply early. OWU has a rolling application process, so the earlier you apply, the earlier you find out if you've been accepted, and the earlier you get your scholarship information. I got my acceptance letter and scholarship info in late December, and it definitely made the rest of my senior year better since I didn't have that looming over me anymore.
