|Students who got into MMA say:|
Essay (2) |
| | Simple application available on maritime.edu - same as everywhere, have good grades, community services, it's good to have some leadership experience, if not, well the school will give it to you (I didn't...). Write a good essay and be in shape - same as everywhere.
My SAT scores were not that great. But that's not the most important thing to them. During your interview, they're looking at your posture and determining if you're a hard worker or not. They're looking at how well you carry yourself and the likelyhood that they can turn you into a professional through their program.

Seems like other state schools look at your grades and your sports, and thats it.
I know people who scored almost perfect SAT scores but would never make it a semester at MMA. It's a different animal there. You can't souly focus on your academics, you have to deal with all the bullshit and mind games they play with you on top of it.
If you show them you're going to work hard, you have a better chance of getting accepted.
Hell I sucked at math in highschool, and I made it through and got an engineering degree because I busted my ass for it.
In my day females got in without any competition.
Now it is competitive. You need to apply early and stand out. Prove you are academically strong enough to finish and demonstrate you have leadership potential. Excel at some outside activity. Being a volunteer in a charity will help. Write your essay and tell them how badly you want to go there. They are looking for kids who want to stick with it and graduate.
If your SATs are not above average, talk your parents into a prep course.
dont, i didnt know where to go and was given false promises about what campus life was all about
