Standard application and SAT general plus subject testsFeb 23 2014Psychology
Standard application and SAT general plus subject tests. In retrospect, I should have also submitted a resume and additional materials. I had no opportunity for interview.
SAT: 1440 Male
Lots of extracurriculars and other stuff to make youDec 07 2011Biology
Lots of extracurriculars and other stuff to make you stand out, but honestly the college process sucks so just try your best to get through it, the accepting process is a shit hole.

They are really focusing on personal diversity (not justMay 06 2011Other
They are really focusing on personal diversity (not just race or religion) but what makes you stand out. You can definitely tell that with the younger student body.
SAT: 2180 Female
I asked my friend to write me a recommendationDec 15 2010Anthropology
I asked my friend to write me a recommendation. I sent in my SAT IIs, I visited the campus and had an interview.
ACT: 28 SAT: 1920 Female
I was off the waitlist at CC and decidedFeb 11 2010Psychology
I was off the waitlist at CC and decided to go there last minute. Originally I was deciding between University of Richmond, George Washington University, and BU. Ultimately, I wanted the small school experience not too far from home.

Academic record is most important here so take the most challenging classes you can handle and perform well. Testing is completely optional, meaning your personal qualities and leadership plays a much larger role in the decision process than most other schools. Also show interest! Interview there, visit the campus, visit the Conn. table at college fairs and high school visits. The more they think you want to go, the more likely they are to lean your way.

Truly a great place-- not to mention 3 beaches nearby!
SAT: 1330 Male
