Ever since DrApr 08 2013Criminal
Ever since Dr. Carter has arrived, I guess the academics has gotten more challenging and professors are more strict and teaching freshmen students at more challenging levels, which is great. Therefore, admissions at Johnson C. Smith University is much more competitive and challenging than it once was. I had to type essays, send my transcripts with a grade point average no lower than 3.0 GPA, along with letters of recommendations in order to be accepted. However, my GPA was exactly a 4.0 grade point average when applying, therefore, I was offered the academic scholarship of $20,000 which was the most exciting. I did not know that it was split up each year and semester, so, big thing to know before attending is, UNDERSTAND YOUR AWARD LETTERS OR SCHOLARSHIPS BEFORE ATTENDING, know how much you will have to pay out of pocket and maybe even call the Financial Aid office and have them break it down to you via email or phone. All of the staff and faculty are very welcoming and respectful here at Smith, so if you are looking forward to attending, be ready to receive a stellar education, the Smith-way! GO BULLS!

As far as getting in, the year 2006 wasn'tSep 20 2010Criminal
As far as getting in, the year 2006 wasn't difficult. I believe President Carter is changing things and upping the GPA requirements and testing. I recommend keeping JCSU as a fall back, if you can go somewhere else like UNCC go there. I felt like JCSU was built in an unsafe environment. I would like more opportunities with surrounding cities, etc. You can get to restaurants (etc) without getting on the bus system. I think I heard JCSU is now providing vouchers, as they should.
