They accept anyoneAug 24 2008Undecided
They accept anyone. They only want your money. They are the largest school with the largest amount of incoming freshman. That should raise a red flag that says, "hey we accept anyone"

If you're worried about getting in because of yourAug 09 2008PreDent and Dentistry
If you're worried about getting in because of your SAT or ACT score, don't. They care more about your GPA but seeing as there are about 37,000 students here, give or take about a 1000, I don't see how someone couldn't get in. I recommend going to a community college and then transferring to save money and time because VCU is useless to go to. Hope this review helps someone who's like me.

It wasn't that hard and I panicked over nothingJul 13 2008Communications
It wasn't that hard and I panicked over nothing. It is an easy school to get into but I don't think its a school for rejects because the classes do challenge you and my GPA in high school was above a 3.0
