I saw the school and LOVED it, but theyJan 27 2008Psychology
I saw the school and LOVED it, but they put on a veil over the school. I did two interviews and early action to get in. To my friends that are thinking of applying or transferring, I tell them the truth of the school and its problems.
ACT: 25 SAT: 1740 Male
Interview!Oct 21 2007Social Work
Interview! Even if it doesn't help you get in or get money its worth it because it helps you realize that (in my case) this was where you want to be. They really read your essay they love it when you send extra things (for example I sing, but I wasn't going for voice. I sent in a CD though to show them another part of my life that wasn't expressed in my essay)!
SAT: 2020 Female
I did almost no work for twelve years andMay 15 2007Political Science
I did almost no work for twelve years and they gave me money. You need a pulse and a high school diploma.
SAT: 2100 Male
