I was admitted automatically for having a certain GPASep 05 2016Biology
I was admitted automatically for having a certain GPA. I had a 3.6 and I wish I would've taken it somewhere else. They let anyone in this school. Some of the students here had me a little shocked that they even graduated high school. Students here lack work ethic, I can't even count on my hands how many times I've heard students in my class groan and whine for being assigned work. If you take your education seriously beyond just partying please go elsewhere! I had a decent GPA but made the mistake of taking scholarship money here. This school is just a place for students to say they went to college.

My friends and I always joke that in orderAug 29 2016Business - Management and Administration
My friends and I always joke that in order to be accepted into Central, you just need a pulse. I would say, just apply if you want to go here. I do assume that they reject some people but I haven't heard of anyone getting rejected from here. However, I do feel like if you can pay the full tuition and you take as little resources as possible, they'll let you in even if your a convicted felon. This school needs money and if your willing to give them more money than what they're giving you, you're golden!

I would like to reference a comment I seen on here earlier! I don't necessarily think that anyone aspires to go to Central as far as a "Dream school" goes, most people go here because of reality and it being extremely cheap. This school often is in the shadows of UW, WWU, WSU, EWU and then Central W. In that order. Which mostly implies that this is normally the last stop for applicants before they decided to do community college.

Breathe. Breathe and your in! It's not about getting in, it's about getting out when you realize what this school stands for.

If you are a person who isn't middle class white from a small random town in eastern Washington, your life will be hell here.
