Don't be a minority per se, but know aMay 09 2005English
Don't be a minority per se, but know a lot about service learning and minority retention. Be from Wisconsin, go to a good high school and do all the conventional stuff. Consider trying to get into a professional school that suits your background if your overall record is nothing special. Probably wouldn't hurt to say that you realize how very competitive they are and how very high their standards are.
ACT: 29 Female
Admission seems to be based on ranking among allApr 22 2005Psychology
Admission seems to be based on ranking among all UW applicants based on an equation. If you're a state resident in the top ten percent of your high school class and have a "good" ACT score, it shouldn't be too difficult.

Well. not muchApr 14 2005Undecided
well. not much. get high test scores and high grades. then again my junior and senior year grades sucked. i dropped from a 4.0 to a 3.4. maybe my test scores made up for it. hell, i ended up in the honors program too, so i must've done something right. just keep yer grades up (even when it seems so lovely to let them drop). dont worry too much about the SAT/ACT. most of the difference in scores on it is based on luck/preparaion for the types of questions on the tests moreso than raw intelligence. write good essays. dont write them at 4am the night b4 your college counselor wants them. thats it.
