It is not that hard to get into VillanovaJan 27 2011Math
It is not that hard to get into Villanova. If you get good grades and participate in extracurriculars, you'll get in.
Study hardOct 18 2010Economics
Study hard. Expect great teachers, but a some-what boring campus.
I didn't have the best SAT scores (around 1230)Dec 29 2009Engineering Department
I didn't have the best SAT scores (around 1230) or ACT scores (26), but I had a 3.9 unweighted GPA and 4.35 weighted GPA and was ranked in the top 2% of my class, being 15 out of 600. I have a friend here who had a little less than a 3.0 GPA but amazing SAT scores so I guess have one or the other. Also, lots of activities to show you are well-rounded. I did community service every weekend for 2 years and was involved in theater, choir, dance, speech and debate, and a few other little things. A killer essay is also key. Make sure it is meaningful and thoughtful, not just something you wrote on a whim.

High SAT scores and GPA are undoubtedly a mustOct 05 2009Education
High SAT scores and GPA are undoubtedly a must - Villanova is becoming very competitive. A strong background in community service definitely helps. If you haven't done any volunteer work in high school and want to go to Villanova - START NOW!

Bring something different to your essay. Stand out.
And if you have visited Villanova on a campus tour, make sure they know that by filling out an information sheet. If you haven't visited yet, then why not?
