I don't think it's highly selective, but this isOct 30 2013Geography and Geosciences
I don't think it's highly selective, but this is quality education. I had 1600 on my SATs and a 90 average at Thomas Edison High School in Jamaica, Queens. However, there are students who have gotten in with lower grades and SAT scores.
SAT: 1600 Male
Get at least averageJun 27 2012Economics
Get at least average SAT scores 500 Math & 500 Reading. GPA wise 3.5 (86) or higher. As for transfer students it pretty easy 30 college credits and at least a 3.0 GPA.

Dont go here student body here's made up ofDec 06 2010Accounting
dont go here; student body here's made up of underachieving students who feel good about themselves when they score higher against others in school, while there are much smarter kids at other schools who would clearly beat qc kids but qc kids are ignorant; kids here are very cliquey, feels much like h.s. all over again; girls arent even attractive yet they act like they're so desirable; if they even go outside to other schools, other schools' girls would win by a long shot; kids here are lazy, not ambitious, losers. if u wanna get in, all u need is a 75 avg from h.s. and a mediocre sat score.

Easy to get in, standards are "toughened up" aDec 11 2007Sociology
Easy to get in, standards are "toughened up" a bit, to make the school look better by increasing cut-off scores. Just have a 2.7 gpa if your a transfer or look at the cut-off scores.

If you must go to Queens College, look carefully at the curriculum , know what you are getting into, choose your professors carefully, and spread out certain courses. Maybe going there at off-peak hours may be helpful.
SAT: 1250 Female
