They really take the SAT seriously, at my timeJun 03 2011Psychology
They really take the SAT seriously, at my time of writing it's the number one thing they look for so really focus on that. However, there is a rumor they will stop requiring the SAT for applications. Nevertheless, I suggest you take it (if you can do well on it) because it can only help your chances, especially if you don't have the highest GPA.
SAT: 1940 Female
In high school I took very difficult classes, myMar 08 2011Psychology
In high school I took very difficult classes, my GPA was fair, SATs were very good (I was National Merit), and my essays were also very good. I got a VERY sizable scholarship.

I don't think it is very difficult to get into Furman, and they give out a lot of money. However, high acceptance rates does not mean a poor quality student body. The kids who apply to Furman tend to be smart already.
