For the OT program, aNyone can get in, theyMar 25 2013Public Health
For the OT program, aNyone can get in, they kick people out after they graduate with undergrad in general studies between the undergrad and grad year. They get your money and then if you still want to be an OTA, you are screwed because all your federal loan dollars were used for your CSM education. If you are not 100% sure you can make it through, don't waste your time on a waiting list to get into this program, you will be disappointed to say the least.
I wouldn't recommend getting it!Mar 25 2013Other
I wouldn't recommend getting it! Consider a different OT school!!! One that has excellent board pass rates.
They will accept almost anyone, sadlyDec 22 2011Nursing
It does not take much to get into CollegeMay 18 2004Nursing
It does not take much to get into College of Saint Mary. You just have to take entrance exams if you haven't done your ACT or SAT. Although it is expensive to attend CSM they do help quite a bit with finacial aid and scholarships.
I met the minimum requirements (actually, I exceeded them),May 18 2004Education
I met the minimum requirements (actually, I exceeded them), and when I visited campus for the first time, I knew that this was the place for me. Just walking around the campus, all students and staff/faculty we ran into said 'hi' and wanted to know what I was thinking about majoring in. The friendliness and willingness to help out really aided me in my decision to attend CSM. The financial aid office is very helpful in finding money to cover most of your expenses. The process of application is very easy and the course runs smoothly. The admission officers are SO helpful and they explain everything to you in words you can understand, not the legal terms that confuse the accountants! I recommend that all high school juniors and seniors take the ACT as many times as needed until you reach your goal score. My goal was a 25, but I ran out of time because I did not start taking the ACT as soon as I could. I ended up with a 23, but my goal was a 25, so if I could re-live high school, I would have taken the ACT at earlier times to help increase my score. Otherwise, just keep a GPA of 2.5 or more, and you're set. College of Saint Mary is a wonderful place for "mediocre" and "wonderful" students, but if you are going to just screwball around in college, I wouldn't recommend coming here. CSM is for women who want to make something of their life, not party all the time!
