Take the ACT and have many extracurricular activities onNov 03 2013Psychology
Take the ACT and have many extracurricular activities on your resume. Make sure to write a good entrance essay because Hope will personally respond to each one. Go for an admissions interview and make a good impression (I really think this is a big deal).

Don't treat high school like a time to slack offApr 07 2008Geography and Geosciences
Don't treat high school like a time to slack off. If you don't want to pay out of pocket or become burdened with massive student loans, try for an academic scholarship. Both the admissions office and the financial aid office have wonderful staff. Work study once you are on campus is readily accessible.
