Furman wants well-rounded students; You could apply as a person of a non-causcasian race, that would get you in;If you want a definite way in, claim to be gay, the university is after diversity so hard these days, they'll let anyone who'll say that in; Volunteer work got me in; they want a 1250 or better on the SAT nowadays, but unless you're really alot lower than that, these things can help you.

Actually, I just checked Furman's box on the commonFeb 24 2003Psychology
Actually, I just checked Furman's box on the common application. However, for general application advice, I would say to focus on conveying who you are as well as (even if you can't be specific) who you might want to become. This way, if you really are a match for the school, it will show and the admission process will be easy.
ACT: 33 SAT: 1490 Female
My advice, no matter what school you are applyingJan 30 2003Religion/Religious
My advice, no matter what school you are applying to, do not try to cater to the selection committee of any school. Just present yourself as honestly and accurately as possible, and if they feel their school is not the place for you, you're better off not going there! Trust your gut and pick the school that feels most like "you".
ACT: 26 SAT: 1260 Female
