CofC is very interested in your contribution to theDec 30 2014Geography and Geosciences
CofC is very interested in your contribution to the community. Make good grades, do as well as you can on the SAT or ACT, but make sure to make a difference in your community before you apply :) VOLUNTEER!!!
Online you will read that 70 percent of applicantsDec 30 2014Unknown
Online you will read that 70 percent of applicants are admitted. If you out of state, that statistic is probably less the 50 percent. With admissions, the in-state vs out-of-state gap is HUGE. I cannot emphasize this enough. SC residents prefer Clemson and USC because many are born into a lifelong allegiance to either school, mostly because of football. This is the deep south, for many, football is like religion. So in-states have a tougher time getting into Clemson and USC, and CofC is not usually a contender.
SAT: 1180 Male
If you can, try to gauge your interest ofSep 04 2014Education
If you can, try to gauge your interest of the school as early as possible and contact your admission's counselor. They're very helpful and, if you keep in contact with them, they'll know you more on a first-name basis.
SAT: 2100 Female
I was wait listed and was so disappointed becauseDec 02 2013Undecided
I was wait listed and was so disappointed because CofC was my #1 choice. When I got in I was ecstatic and could not wait to go. After I received my acceptance, the staff was very difficult to get into contact with and the university informed me I was not guaranteed housing. Instead, they offered to have me live at the Campus Center Apartments--"off-campus" apartments with a crazy high rent, and the space is not worth the money. After having words with my dad, the school magically found available housing. You need to threaten the staff to get anything done.
SAT of 1200 out of 1600, GPA of 3May 05 2013English
SAT of 1200 out of 1600, GPA of 3.5, excellent personal statement about my love for creative writing, extracurriculars outside of school of community service I did around town with different organizations, statewide theatre competition titles, attended a magnet program in HS, did a sport for a brief amt. of time (cross country), was in many different clubs in HS (5 or 6 over the 4yr time span), I also showcased the projects of my personal interest I worked on such as producing my own play and making costumes for professional productions around town. This school was not my first choice it was the safety school of my safety school lol Though I didn't get into my first choice but I got into both of my seconds, College of Charleston offered me more money than I could bear to turn down and I do not regret my decision. I am learning, growing, building a great foundation for my career and soon graduate school for a M.F.A. and networking, the city of Charleston is small enough to walk in a day but big enough to make some serious connections for ANY field you want to work in. If you are thinking about this school, apply ASAP, show your best self and get those test scores and GPA's as high as you can because it will literally pay off $$$$$ for you
SAT: 1200 Female
