Honestly, my SAT scores were above average, but myApr 26 2011Chemistry
Honestly, my SAT scores were above average, but my QPA from high school was around a 3.4 with all honors and AP. I feel that my admittance and large scholarship was heavily influenced by my letters of recommendation from two alumni, one of which who was a large donor to the college. And the money he donates obviously didn't go towards refining the housing process, because many of the people from my former class were almost left without housing for this upcoming year.

Taking AP classes in high school is very importantMar 28 2011Political Science
Taking AP classes in high school is very important.
Class rank is also very important if your HS ranks.
If your HS does not rank, SAT or ACT scores become very important. Allegheny does require the SAT or ACT, and many prospective students take both.
