To get into PSU I had good grades, B average, ad was pretty involved in extracurricular activities. I also try my best to show that I am very determined and eager to learn student, that may have played a role in my acceptance.

I applied to this university because it was affordable,Apr 06 2015Political Science
I applied to this university because it was affordable, in the heart of Portland, and I had heard good things from former students.

To apply, I just did their online application form. Once I got accepted, it took them three months to bother sending an acceptance notification. I found out when I emailed housing about the first year experience.

If for some reason you want to get in, just maintain a C or B throughout high school.

Almost anyone can get in here, honestly. I think their cutoff is anything below a 2.0.

A nut-less monkey could get into this school. Count to five, agree with homosexuality, and you're in!

To get in, I just sent in my transcripts,Jan 04 2015Philosophy
To get in, I just sent in my transcripts, got three letters of recommendation, filled out the application, and paid the application fee... It was a bit of nightmare getting my residency paperwork sorted out (maybe that's what the letters were for? I don't recall), but to be honest, that's just a part of dealing with their offices. It's not pleasant. But once everything's sorted it, you don't really have to deal with it again.
