Apply soonOct 27 2015History/Histories (art history/etc.)
Apply soon. The school's acceptance rate will be going down due to increasing interest from students. Do not expect to be able to transfer here in the future.

I got it due to relatively high SAT scoresFeb 09 2014History/Histories (art history/etc.)
I got it due to relatively high SAT scores. My high school grades were mostly good but mixed.

I thought it would be hard to get in,Jan 02 2012Undecided
I thought it would be hard to get in, but I was accepted.
I had an average GPA in HS, and my SAT score was weak. I suggest if you're in a similar boat apply via portfolio path and write a good essay. They want to see that you're open, well-rounded and looking to broaden your horizons. Don't lie. If that isn't you, than you won't enjoy your time here. Be honest with your application. If you're not accepted than trust that the application committee didn't think you fit well, they're probably right, and you probably would have hated it here.
SAT: 1750 Female

I got pretty good grades, was involved in a few clubs, got a decent ACT score. I visited the school and loved it. Just write and honest essay and feel free to push the envelope. Lewis and Clark is a community of innovators.
