ACT: 29 SAT: 1920 Female
Very competitiveOct 18 2011Education

I focused on extracurriculars like sports, clubs and jobsAug 02 2011PreMed and Medical
I focused on extracurriculars like sports, clubs and jobs while maintaining a B/B+ average. I also did very well on the SAT's. I recommend finding one or two extracurriculars that you enjoy and do everything you can in that area (getting a leadership role, participating in all of the activities, etc.) Having strong involvement in one or two things is much more desirable to schools than being involved in ten different things without actually doing much of anything. Also, take challenging classes, schools respect you for challenging yourself and see that you want to push yourself to be the best.
SAT: 2010 Female
I had a 3Apr 30 2011Mechanical Engineering
I had a 3.7 overall GPA in High School, but had to stay in-state.
Male
I was very involved, particularly in the cultural centersApr 19 2011Unknown
I was very involved, particularly in the cultural centers which are remarkable in their ability to get students engaged and involved on campus in their own individual way. Many students are also involved in sports as it the main concern of the school (Sports spending comparatively is one of the highest in nation).
SAT: 1250 Male
