I had a 4Jun 04 2017Biology
I had a 4.4 GPA and the top of my class. But for ECU all you have to do is the bare minimum... I am pretty sure you only need like a 2.0 to get in. In other words, just send in your application and if you did not fail your classes in high school you will get in.
ACT: 26 Female
ECU accepts everyone with above a 2Sep 18 2015Communications
ECU accepts everyone with above a 2.5 GPA. I wouldn't even worry about getting in here.
SAT: 1750 Male
Got good grades, was in the IB Diploma ProgramJan 19 2015Biology
Got good grades, was in the IB Diploma Program (challenging college level coursework), had plenty of extracurriculars and had A+++ teacher recommendations. If you want to get in, follow the sentence above or have a really good admission's essay with pretty good grades. One or the other will do.
I got in w/ a 2Nov 14 2014Physical Therapy/Exercise Science
I got in w/ a 2.7 GPA and a 1630 SAT. I'm from out of state. I also did sports, volunteered, clubs, and was an ambassador in high school.
SAT: 1700 Male
I just did meSep 18 2013History/Histories (art history/etc.)
I just did me. I heard back 3 weeks after applying. The school is great and can be challenging, it may be known as a party school, and rightly so, but its academic are nevertheless rigorous and underrated. Party reputations seem to do that, and the university has been buckling down on it in recent years.
