I was a B student in high school andAug 28 2004Education
I was a B student in high school and i had no motivation. I was pretty much a procrastinator in high school. But I did do various sports (football and lacrosse) and lots of volunteer work (Boy scouts).

I aced my SATS, but like others said, you can get in with high 1200s SATs to have a fair shot at this college, but high 1300s will get you in.

Take 3 SAT IIs (writing, math, science), scored above 690 on each of them.

If you're a good student, and want a good education come here.
ACT: 35 SAT: 1600 Female

study hard in high school, visit the campus, try to sound interested in the school, and really dedicate yourself in high school.

If you want to get into this school, you have a competitve chance if you grades are above 3.7, sats are above 1250, sat iis above 650, act above 29.

This school is equivalent to some say Boston College.

Make sure you appear interested in Geneseo by calling them, visiting their campus (visit admissions), talk to the teachers etc.

Make sure you have a couple of activities/sports to put under your belt.

If you're over a 90 average, don't forget you might be national honor's society.

You have to sell yourself, even if you did a job throughout the school year, TELL THEM THAT!
