Hendrix's 26-32 ACT median and 4May 13 2014Chemistry
Hendrix's 26-32 ACT median and 4.0 high school GPA average despite its high acceptance rate of about 80% indicates that it has a self-selective applicant pool (there are plenty of schools with lower acceptance rates and lower stats), and usually only students who are academically strong enough and well-rounded enough to get substantial scholarships can afford its high cost of attendance. Getting into and affording Hendrix shouldn't be difficult for a good student who is also involved in lots of extracurricular activities. Even if you're only mildly interested, I would recommend applying because Hendrix is known for providing excellent scholarships.

I just did what I was interested in inMar 29 2012Psychology
I just did what I was interested in in high school regarding clubs and sports. My high school required us to do a lot of volunteer work and I had about 3 or 4 jobs on my r?sum? by the time I applied to college. I got into every one of my colleges and I think they just want a well-rounded student who sticks with what he or she is interested in. Definitely get a job, join some clubs and stick with the ones you like. You don't need to play a sport, but maybe you could do theater or something like that. It's cool if you took the time to do a project outside of school that wasn't required because colleges will be able to tell that you're independent, dedicated, and creative. I made a cover page for my application that included a few pictures of me and different aspects of my life, including my interests and friends. My college counselor recommended that we at least send one picture of ourselves so that the admissions staff will know what we look like and realize that we are people rather than a plain application.

Getting into Hendrix isn't terribly difficult, with an acceptance rate hovering around 80%. Just make it clear that you're really interested in Hendrix, and the admissions officers will work with you to make it happen.

I submitted both SAT and ACT scores (requirements vary by state, I'm from Texas). Hendrix also required an essay and a so-called "granola section" where they asked some random questions. I would recommend using the Common Application to save time (it is also the preferred application for Hendrix).
