Don't attend here they are petty and try toOct 05 2017Mechanical Engineering
Don't attend here they are petty and try to get as much money from you as possible. Rooms that are supposed to be doubles are turned into triples, not forced triples that are cheaper regular triples, and many other such many grabbing things are done by this school. In general they are not very good at following the beliefs they expect us to have and are very hypocritical.

It wasn't hard to get in, just do wellJun 20 2017Art & Design Department
It wasn't hard to get in, just do well on your ACT and in high school and you'll get a sizeable scholarship. only issue with this is tuition is $47k a year and goes up 3% every year, so keep that in mind if you don't want to be in debt when you graduate.

I barely tried to get into here but I still got inMay 08 2016Design Arts - Industrial Design/Graphic Design/etc
I barely tried to get into here but I still got in. Just have like a 3.0 and do decently on the SAT's.

To get in my university, I had decent SAT scoresSep 30 2013Computer Science
To get in my university, I had decent SAT scores. Although, I don't know if my SAT scores had to be that high to get in.

I'm not sure you really have to do much to be accepted into Messiah College. There was this one kid in my major who graduated from Messiah and was a complete moron. To illustrate, in his Computer Science major's applications class, he had to work by himself and still did barely any work. When he had to write a program for that class, he did not even know how to write it so he got his friend to write it for him.

I came from a non-traditional backgroundAug 25 2013Engineering Department
I came from a non-traditional background. I got the feeling that the admissions people either let anyone in or really do look at us as individual. The students I interacted with all were ready for the academics.
