I applied with a good great point average andFeb 04 2016Linguistics
I applied with a good great point average and a variety of extra curricula's. Though GDU doesn't have very high standards for who applies so as long as your a good student you'll probably be just fine.

I took my SAT and ACT spontaneouslyOct 10 2015Communications
I took my SAT and ACT spontaneously. I did well considering I did not study because I honestly didn't have the time. I was a year round athlete in high school. As for getting in, as long as your GPA is higher than a 3.0 and you have good SAT/ACT scores, you should be good. You should also have some extra-curricular activity to talk about in your application as well.
It doesn't take a lot to get in asJul 27 2014Political Science
It doesn't take a lot to get in as I have said, this school is not academically challenging (for me at least). I think if you have around a 3.0 gpa and 1600 combined SAT (or 1000 M+V), you stand a good chance for admittance. I believe for many people in Georgia, this school is a safety in case they do not get admitted to Tech or UGA (like my case).

GSU isn't difficult to get intoAug 13 2013Math
GSU isn't difficult to get into. A lot of students who get in are actually very bright, they were just lazy in high school. That's okay, because you can't afford to be lazy in college, and poor students get weeded out rather quickly. Just get through high school with above a 3.0, do average on the SAT or ACT, and you'll get in.
Don't listen to the garbage the student tour guidesJul 06 2013Music - Composition/Theory
Don't listen to the garbage the student tour guides tell you. They lie the whole time. Check their facts- all lies! Crime stats are very high. Not a safe place at all. Make sure you do research before paying any money to attend this dump. Buildings are nasty! You can't even find a clean bathroom when you go to class!
SAT: 1850 Female
