Advice: make sure you are diversified in highschool. Get involved, and stay involved in a lot of DIFFERENT things. I was an artist, and an athlete, as well as involved in a few literary clubs. I think thats what got me into TCNJ, vs. just having a high gpa.
writing a killer essay doesn't hurt either....
I see people freaking out about getting in because there SAT's are just at the avg for TCNJ. Just remember this is an AVERAGE. If you are really interested in getting into TCNJ then apply, if you don't apply then you have no chance at all. I often wonder how the heck I got in with SAT math+ writing of 920 and I swear it was my extracurricular activities. So if your interested go for it! I had only applied to 2 other schools [both nj state colleges] and i really didn't know much about tcnj, but it was the one that seemed like it had the best academic rating, so that's what i chose. I had only heard about it from a friend who graduated from here and she said that she loved it.I think TCNJ is getting to be more well known. I did well on my ACT. That is extremely important because standardized test scores do matter to TCNJ. I also was an honors/ap student. I ended my high school career with a 4.04/3.9. Do well in school. TCNJ is an excellent school and only takes the best, especially if you are a science major. Have a strong resume and get good recommendations from teachers. Just be generally motivated students and participate in a variety of different activities.
