|Students who got into MRC say:|
Essay (40) |
| | To get into Marist, I simply applied and filled out all of the essay portions. For the Class of 2015, we were not required to submit any SAT or ACT scores. On the other hand, I would recommend for the students to provide strong recommendation letters and admission essays. In addition to this, the Admissions Department searches for a diverse and well rounded student populations, so be sure to be involved in many clubs and activities during your senior year in high school. And be sure to definitely keep your grades up! To be accepted into the fashion department, I had to submit a sequence of essays and an entry project that related to the elements and functions of the industry. If you know Marist is perfect for you, apply early decision! I was done with the college process when all my friends were racing to do college essays and applications. Everyone thought I was crazy, but I wouldn't have done it any other way.
I just did well in school academically. I wasn't involved in a whole bunch of different extracurricular activities. I had a few things that I was really passionate about that demonstrated many sides of my character. I would suggest to do both of these things and have a really good essay that shows a part of yourself to the admissions committee. As a fashion student I had to complete a separate application for the program, which was not too difficult. However, for my application to get into the college itself I just focused on my SAT scores and having a personal essay that really said something about me.
