|Students who got into CNU say:|
Essay (15) |
AP classes are very important, I had a 4.3 GPA over all 4 yrs and a 4.7 my senior year. You will need a min. If a 1250 SAT to get any scholarship money here, get into anything like honors and maybe even to get in, period. Most people including myself were members of at least 2 honor societies in high school also. They look at that here pretty heavily.

| Jun 18 2013 | Initially, grades alone got you into cnu. People from the sticks who were given a's got in. This explained the high number of 'honor roll' students with crappy sat scores managing to find their way into the school. Now, if you don't have at least a 1200 sat, at the very least, dont count on acceptance. Some of my personal friends have turned down UVA and Georgetown for Christopher Newport University. Nothing is a sure bet now. I applied, had excellent incoming grades, and attended non-mandatory meetings and asked MANY questions in order to fully understand what was expected of my as a student.
Thus, I feel it is necessary to be a fully committed student, as this is not a ~skate thru~ four+ year University.
For me, getting in was pretty easy since I had good test scores and graduated high school with highest honors. I was also a legacy student, meaning several members of my family had already attended CNU, which I know has some impact on the decision of the admissions officers. As long as your GPA is over 3.0, you shouldn't have much trouble getting in.
