It's easyJan 10 2013Unknown
It's easy. Part of the reason why this school sucks is because it is so easy.

I was a transfer student from NYApr 29 2012Sociology
I was a transfer student from NY. To transfers, I'd say keep a GPA above a 3.2, take a leadership position in an organization, and get personal recommendations from distinguished faculty.

Numbers matter, but I noticed that they really tendMar 27 2012Geography and Geosciences
Numbers matter, but I noticed that they really tend to take into account the full picture of who you are. (Gotta give em props for that.) I'm not the least bit cultured so my grades and SAT's alone got me in, but if you're cultured or diverse and have decent grades and SATs to go with it, you'll be golden.
SAT: 2110 Female
They LOVE diversity and individualismMar 12 2012Biology
They LOVE diversity and individualism. I had the grades and SAT scores personally (which was a good thing considering I'm not a very cultured person) but I had friends who's grades from high school weren't amazing but they said they wrote their application essays on their own personal diversity or unique circumstances/background and got in. I think they're very subjective when they review apps. Numbers and all that matters, but personality plays a bigger part as compared to most other schools.
SAT: 1300 Female

I was in state and had to write several essays an interview with Journ school to get a triple minor.
