|Students who got into KC say:|
Essay (7) |
| | Getting in is the hardest part! Grades, essay, SATs, interview, campus visit, and probably in that order. They want to see that you have passion. I got rejected at first with a 4.5 GPA and a 2250 on the SATs... and I did early decision! But I got in as a transfer student from Weslyan. My essays were pretty generic the first time and I never did an interview... I realize now that those were two of the things that are most important to Kenyon (although of course GPA and SATs are key). BE YOURSELF! Don't go crazy... From what I hear the admissions is quite good at sniffing out who they want... But sports involvement, art, grades and scores (obviously) are important. Typically gpas are something over 3.8 (think Dartmouth or Cornell), and they say the mid range is 28-32, but a safe score is a 34 on the ACT.
