Meet with an admissions counselor if possible, they're allOct 28 2009Chemistry
Meet with an admissions counselor if possible, they're all very nice. Express your desire to come here and provide a good writing sample. Try to keep up good grades in high school. SAT scores around 550 for each section seem to do the trick.
I know of some people who got rejected with a B-/B average in high school even though they had strong recommendations.
Apply early action!

Do something to make you stand outSep 20 2009Education
Do something to make you stand out. When you're writing your college essay, be yourself. This is an institution that thrives on individual differences. I had about a 3.2 overall gpa and a 1700 on the SAT. I put little to no effort in to my work in High school. I was, however, involved in dozens of volunteer activities and I started my own volunteer programs in my community. My essay is also what got me in. I told my life story (which I won't spill out here. haha). I made it personal, and it reflected my truth, my struggles, and me as an individual. Take a lot of time on your essay... Make it YOU. Do your best on the SAT and for your grades. Lastly, GET INVOLVED. Have extracurriculars. Have community service. Also, try not to start community service senior year, just for applications... do it throughout high school. If you are in the case where you're a senior and just starting volunteer work, it's fine. Just keep working hard. Also, when you apply make yourself sound like a leader. They want people who are ready to enforce change. Good luck!! UVM is an awesome school and Burlington is an amazing place. :)
