I applied during the "early action" period of admissionsJul 31 2012Finance
I applied during the "early action" period of admissions. Sending your application in during this period increases the chance of getting into the university.
ACT: 27 Male
Make your personal statement very uniqueJul 21 2012Political Science
Make your personal statement very unique. Think about it this way: the admission council has to read tens of thousands of essays. If you can make your reader laugh, seriously "thing" about a subject, or say "wow," you immediately head to the top of the pile. Droning on about how you like UConn basketball and enjoy the campus is FAR too generic. This tip likely helped me enter both UConn, as well as my current graduate program (which I was slightly under-qualified for at the time.)
Good luck!
SAT: 1310 Male
I was involved in National Honor Society & HabitatJun 18 2012Biology
I was involved in National Honor Society & Habitat for Humanity. I had an ACT score of 29 and SAT score of 2040. I also did track and field, basketball and lacrosse. My courses were as follows : AP Biology, AP Calculus, AP Chemistry, AP Physics and AP History (totally irrelevant to my Biology major.) When I graduated high school I had a whopping GPA of 3.96. It wasn't too hard for me to get into UConn..
ACT: 29 Male
