Austin College

Austin says:
How we make admission decisions
To be considered for admission at Austin College, you must demonstrate graduation (or expectation of graduation) from an accredited secondary school.

Your high school coursework should include at least 15 high school academic units with this distribution:

English (4 units)
Mathematics (3 – 4 units, including geometry and algebra II)
Science (3 – 4 units, including 1 or 2 lab sciences)
Foreign (2 – 4, at least 2 of the same language)
Social studies (2 – 4 units)
Fine arts (1 – 2 units)
Keep in mind that a decent grade in a tough class is more impressive than an easy A. We also consider standardized test scores when making admissions decisions. Austin College accepts either the ACT or SAT.

But don’t think numbers are everything. In considering your application for admission, we’ll be looking for glimpses of the whole person in order to determine whether you’re right for us and us for you. We expect your extracurricular activities, recommendations from counselors and teachers, personal essay—your interview with a member of our admission staff—to tell us the rest of the story about who you are and what you value.

It is easy to get in to this school,Aug 22 2014Unknown
It is easy to get in to this school, but I recommend against it.
The school was very easy to get intoJun 05 2011Political Science
The school was very easy to get into. They have almost a 75 percent acceptance rate. Emphasize leadership or service and you're almost a shoe-in.

I got in as a freshman transfer and IJul 04 2010Fine Arts - Painting/Sculpture/Photography/etc
I got in as a freshman transfer and I excelled in high school. I had a majority AP course load and had a 3.71 GPA. I was also in various extracurriculars and community service programs. They were definitely willing to let me in as long as my academics at my then current school were good. I know that Austin College will take a holistic review of an applicant as a whole. Make sure to be involved in activities that mean a lot to you, and show your passion in your personal statement(s). It has a reputation of turn B and C students into A students. Don't be afraid to apply if your not the most academically excelled student. If you have an immense passion to be here they will hear it. ^_^

Have a good recommendation and an interesting essaySep 20 2009Undecided
Have a good recommendation and an interesting essay. That's really all I can think of, my grades/scores were good but not great and I got in and got some scholarship money.
