Visit multiple times, attend classes, stay overnight, meet student athletes if you want to play a sport, or dancers if you want to dance. Talk to faculty. Look at the size of the school and decide if small, medium or large is right for you. Don't disregard a small school; more connections, lower student faculty ratios and a sense of belonging. I made the perfect choice, I love my college!

Have good grades and essays and just don't send your SATs in.

Unless you can afford full tuition, keep your grades up during high school. HWS financial aid is generally generous with merit scholarships for those deserving of them. If you want to play a sport, be sure the coach is actually recruiting you, otherwise you'll be disappointed when you try and walk on the team.

Among the usual application procedures, I found that the interview was essentail.
SAT: 1280 Male

Interview and visit campus. The colleges are big on service learning, before you interview surf the website and read the "daily update" for conversation topics as well as search CSL the Center for Service Learning.

Your grades and a healthy mix of extracurriculars will probably do the trick. I had no problem getting in, and I was only a little above average on SATs but well above average with grades and challenging courses.

Or have an absurd amount of money.
