Admissions at Knox is quite lenient compared to otherFeb 27 2017English
Admissions at Knox is quite lenient compared to other similarly rigorous institutions (70+ percent acceptance rate). Knox boasts a record for inclusivity and wants students from all over the world to study here. The interview and on-campus visit is much more important, in my experience, than your academic background. It's a small school and admissions counselors/staff will more than likely remember who you are if you came to visit.
