I applied, and got inApr 23 2004Biology
I applied, and got in. As long as your SAT's are above 1200, you're virtually assured being accepted.
SAT: 1270 Male
When I applied, all I had to do wasApr 22 2004Political Science
When I applied, all I had to do was send in the SUNY-wide application and my transcript, but now there's a supplemental application with an essay and letters of recommendation. There's also an honors college, which has a separate application of its own.

It's a fairly competitive school but at times it seems like a lot of people here don't belong in college. Having said that, I think the average SAT score is in the mid-1100's. I'm not sure what the average GPA is, but it's around a solid B+ if I'm not mistaken. Over here, you get a lot of people who had Stony as their first-choice school, just as many applied to it as a "safety" school but ended up here for one reason or another.
SAT: 1360 Male

Anyone can probably much get into this universityApr 21 2004Business - Management and Administration
Anyone can probably much get into this university. It requires average academics, and not really into screening people. I would recommend other students to try their best to find another college. I thought this school was great too when I first came, but this university is the perfect example for the saying: "Looks can be deceiving."
SAT: 1110 Male
