Not hard to get inAug 26 2014Biology
Not hard to get in. Have an ACT score of 22 or SAT score of 1030. Sometimes lower exceptions are made because of GPA. I came in with a 3.8 GPA from community college. The minimum GPA is 2.0-2.5 and there is a good chance you'll get in. But like I said earlier, many will come here but most will not graduate in 4-6 years. It's simply the truth
ACT: 28 Male
Getting into VCU was not as difficult as IApr 09 2014Undecided
Getting into VCU was not as difficult as I had originally intended. Granted, Arts is a whole different story and if you want to get into their Arts program, well let's just say you better be pretty good.
I had a 3.1 and a 1060 SAT, and did not take an ACT. I believe if you show immense interest in the school, they will notice you. I can say that confidently being in the lower 25%. This is and continues to be my dream school.
SAT: 1060 Female

Suck at life: I'm not even kidding. Buy a gun with me.
SAT: 1400 Female
Not difficultFeb 19 2014Biology
Not difficult. 23 ACT score and 3.4 GPA got me in fairly quickly. Just show a bit of interest and you should be fine.
ACT: 23 Male
Go to J.Sargent ReynoldsFeb 05 2014Finance
Go to J.Sargent Reynolds. Earn an Associates Degree and then you are guaranteed to get in as a Junior. This is a much easier path and you will then have two degrees when you are done, both an Associates and a Bachelors as I currently have. Not to mention it is WAYY CHEAPER that way!! Seriously I may totally of hated my time at VCU but J.Sargent Reynolds was actually a pretty good school and it only costs about 1k a semster verses 5k at VCU a semester.
