I was a transfer student from SUNY Stony BrookDec 27 2009Sociology
I was a transfer student from SUNY Stony Brook. The school has become increasingly competitive since I was admitted. It seems as if the admissions department is less critical of transfer students. My SAT scores were relatively low and I did not take challenging course work in high school. I received mediocre grades at Stony Brook. Geneseo pushed me to become a better student and person. Prepare to be shocked if you did not try in high school or at another institution. My first semester GPA at Geneseo was a 2.75, and I work my ass off now to get 3.8's.
Admissions criteria are tough, and the school is veryDec 16 2009Political Science
Admissions criteria are tough, and the school is very competitive. Be prepared for a lot of paperwork, although this is probably true at any college.

I worked my ass off in highschool and deserved to get into Dartmouth!

Instead, I was miserable for a year at Geneseo...

My advice, stay away unless you are able to commute.

To be honest, I didn't really do much to get in.
I put all my effort into other applications and only applied to Geneseo because I figured it'd be the only one I could afford. I have noticed that Geneseo seems to value AP courses on your schedule, even if you do not do so well in them.
SAT: 1360 Female
