I was an above average student in high schoolOct 26 2019Biology
I was an above average student in high school and I was extremely involved in volunteering (founded an organization, 100+ service hours every year) Took the SATs twice, didn't really study, got pretty much the same score both times.
SAT: 1450 Female
I personally did not think TCNJ was exceptionally hardOct 13 2015Math
I personally did not think TCNJ was exceptionally hard to get into. I had good high school grades, all honors and AP and a lot of extra curricular activities. I was not the best test taker and only got a 1750 on my SATs. I do think TCNJ is a good school though. Many students that attend are students that were accepted to great schools but could not afford them. Each year it gets more and more competitive. Yet if you maintained decent grades and had decent SAT schools you will be fine. You do not have to be IVY league material to get in.

To get in i participated in a few briefDec 13 2014Business - Management and Administration
to get in i participated in a few brief extra curriculars, worked, and did community service. try hard with grades and SAT but this school isn't Ivy League either. it was still hard to get in and even though i applied very early they waited until the last possible day to accept me. was not a good experience.
SAT: 1790 Female
I didn't do anything special, and didn't expect toAug 07 2014Music Education
I didn't do anything special, and didn't expect to be accepted in the first place. My test scores were decent, but nothing spectacular. I had a lot of extracurricular activities because I did a lot of theatre and was in multiple ensembles in high school, but overall in terms of accepted students, I think I just fell in the middle of the bell curve, and was lucky enough to be accepted.
ACT: 30 SAT: 1960 Female
I got a very good SAT score, and had a 4Mar 20 2014Political Science
I got a very good SAT score, and had a 4.3 GPA (weighted) throughout HS. This was my safety school, so I didn't put much thought into it. It was my home state, so I applied to this school. If you want to get in, don't be a complete idiot in HS, and try and get a 1600 or higher on the SAT. That should do it.
