Not terrible hard to get in, but also not easyApr 21 2012History/Histories (art history/etc.)
Not terrible hard to get in, but also not easy. If you tried in high school and got a decent score on the SAT's, you'll be ok.
This school caters to honor students and everyone elseApr 17 2012Undecided
This school caters to honor students and everyone else is a number. Too bad given out of state tuition. Departments especially administration are inconsistent and give conflicting information. Follow through and communication are poor. Don't expect any direction as a freshman.
SAT: 1880 Male
I was in the top 7% of my high school classApr 10 2012Psychology
I was in the top 7% of my high school class. I was on two varsity sports teams. got 1970 on SATs. 3.8 unweighted GPA on a 4.3 scale. 5.1 weighted GPA on a 5.3 scale. Took all IB and AP classes my junior and senior years. Freshman and sophomore years I was in the highest level classes offered to students at my high school. (My high school is one of the top secondary schools in NJ) Involved in numerous extracurricular activities with several leadership positions. Also volunteered in my hometown. For those of you who know what International Baccalaureate (IB) is I was a diploma candidate (eventually received my IB diploma). For those of you who don't know what that is, its basically AP on steroids.
I recommend students take as many AP/IB classes as possible. You will get more credit for AP scores rather than IB. Also, get involved in extracurriculars that mean something to you. Sports won't hurt either. In short, be well-rounded.
SAT: 1970 Female
I had an average GPA and high SAT scoresFeb 20 2012Biology
I had an average GPA and high SAT scores. I signed up for an interview through the UD's admission office which I believe helped put a face to a name. I made sure I had strong extra curricular activities, including a sport, instrument, job experience, and some volunteer hours. I also made my essay very powerful and interesting.
SAT: 1400 Female
Didn't do much, the university actually came to meFeb 17 2012Philosophy
Didn't do much, the university actually came to me for recruitment. If you want to get in, study hard. Have a strong math background or you will find yourself a bit screwed even if you do get here. (at least pre calc).
SAT: 2240 Male
