Lots of extracurriculars and high gpaMar 04 2004Biology
ACT: 22 Female
2.7 GPA SAT's V 680 Q 620Dec 22 2003Chemistry
2.7 GPA SAT's V 680 Q 620
My high SAT scores made up for my low GPA. I also had two AP courses (eng. lit. and chem.). I was still in geometry when I took the test and I'm sure my high quant. score helped to offset that (95% on the algebra but only 60% on geo.). If you're smart you can slack like me and just do good on the SAT's.
SAT: 1300 Male
Applying was easy- just fill out the application onlineDec 07 2003Business - Management and Administration
Applying was easy- just fill out the application online or in paper format. Residents should not have a problem being accepted, however, out-of-state residents are, from what I heard, scrutinized more. Almost all are admitted, though.
Satisify everyting on the application and you should notNov 19 2003Business - Management and Administration
Satisify everyting on the application and you should not have any problems getting in. Of course, make sure to have community service, AP courses, dual enrollment, sports, music and whatever else you can to wow them.
