To get into Knox you need to show aAug 24 2016Physics
To get into Knox you need to show a willingness to grow and to contribute to the community. Showing involvement in extracurricular activities is always good. So is showing a willingness to take full advantage of what a liberal arts education has to offer. I highly suggest finding the right college for you (through visits and research).
I applied through the Common App and wrote aJun 23 2014Music - Performance
I applied through the Common App and wrote a fun application essay that detailed a day in my life as a student at Knox. I did a lot of research and used that information in my essay, eg. I mentioned talking to the swim coach and looked him up so I could use his name in the essay.
One cool thing a bout Knox is that it is a test-optional school, you can apply with just a transcript and not have to take the SAT's or ACT's.
I worked really hard on my grades and IMar 19 2014Political Science
I worked really hard on my grades and I took difficult courses. It's not enough to simply take easy classes and get "A" in those. Challenge yourself as much as you can. I also recommend you do what you love. Knox is full of quirky people who do what they love. I suggest you start now.
I made sure to maintain a good GPA throughoutFeb 26 2014Philosophy
I made sure to maintain a good GPA throughout my high school years. I would not recommend waiting till junior year to strengthen that, Knox as well as other colleges want to see consistency. In terms of my test scores, I decided not submit them, but I would recommend trying to score as high as you potentially can because there is scholarship money out there for you. One of the most important components of your application is your essay. Make sure to take this component seriously as well as have it proofread. It is important to be the best overall student that you can be, and there can be a financial incentive in that too.
Things are a little different as a transfer student,Feb 26 2014Perfomance Arts
Things are a little different as a transfer student, but Knox looked at most of the same things that colleges look for when you're first applying. To get in, I really just tried my best in school and made sure that I made an effort in all my places. We can't do perfectly in every subject, but having at least one subject that you really excel in is a good start. Knox is really interested in academically vigorous students who have diverse interests. They really pride themselves on being a school with really high achieving students who are unique in their own way. They also pride themselves on having students who have really diverse interests in terms of majors. I guess for the most part, Knox really loves students who are passionate about what they do.
