Top 10% of class really helps and SAT scoresJul 29 2005Economics
Top 10% of class really helps and SAT scores around 1250 will do fine. The incoming class of 2009 has a mean SAT or 1203 so be above that and you should have a decent shot. Admit rate is around 40-45%.

Be original.

I got in because I was an athlete. Basically, if you've got decent grades, and play are good at a sport, you're set.

Absolutely nothingAug 13 2004English
Absolutely nothing. In 1993, I transferred here from an out of state university whose tuition, initially, was a MUCH better value than Delaware's, and whose curriculum actually included my major (Library Science). After my beloved KU raised their out of state tuition 40%, all but packing my bags for me, I had to come here. The transfer process was a joke. I submitted transcripts and test scores and then received a letter of acceptance. This university now is clamoring to become Ivy League, mandating that students now spend at least one semester abroad or perform an internship before they are allowed to graduate. It has become increasingly difficult to get in, as they are now screening for top test scores and highest GPA's. It looks great in college profiles to have the best of the best, but everyone else - the average student - gets the waitlist and the shaft. Do yourself a favor -if you can get an education at a smaller school and be assured that you will study within your major, receive at least a minimum amount of individual attention from professors and TA's, and not be awakened at 3:00 a.m. EVERY SINGLE NIGHT by bogus fire drills while living in Rodney, do it. Stay as far away from this place as you can, because if you don't drink and you're more of an introvert, this is not the place for you.
