Try to do as well as you can on your ACT/SATNov 19 2015Kinesiology
Try to do as well as you can on your ACT/SAT. It's not a big deal if you don't get an amazing score. If you think your scores are too low, try to add value to your application in other ways. Incorporate what you do outside the classroom, such as community service or sports. Also try to finish strong senior year of high school. I know it's tough, but just do it. Do really well on the placement tests for math and foreign language. Test out of as much as you can!!! Take as many AP classes as you can!!! I wish I would have done these things myself. Honestly, do you want to have to take Algebra, Trig, Chemistry, History, and English all over again in college? HELL NO. Pass those AP classes and entrance exams with flying colors so you can graduate early and save yourself hella money.

Coastal over accepts students and is not prepared toApr 11 2015English
Coastal over accepts students and is not prepared to provide basic college services. Getting in to coastal is far from a challenge and if you cannot get in here college probably is not the option for you.

as long as you have at least a 2.0, you'll get in. don't worry too much about school work or extracurriculars because coastal doesn't care.

I'm not going to say it's easy to get inJan 11 2015Accounting
I'm not going to say it's easy to get in. I had a decent amount of heavily involved extra curriculars. My course load included just 2 AP classes. I graduated with a 4.0 GPA but my SAT scores were only a 1630 (Math,Reading,Writing). Not the most impressive so I wouldn't say it's hard to get in but don't slack off if you want to go here. They're still pretty selective.
