| Jan 21 2010 | When I first decided that I wanted to apply to Marist, I went on the school's website to gain a better sense of what type of people would flourish in that enviornment. I also wanted to see what credentials the admissions office were looking for. After doing a little research, I filled out the application with crossed fingers.
If anyone would like to get into Marist College someday, I would highly reccomend that during high school and over summer breaks these individuals participate in volunteer activities and community service. Marist looks for well rounded students, not just brilliant minds. They want to make sure that this person will be a benefit to the campus as well. Do not get me wrong, grades and SAT scores are also considered highly. But try to do your part to make sure you stand out from your peers.
I used the commmon app and sent in my SAT scores. In high school, i maintained a 3.7 average and was also involved in many clubs and activities. Marist not only looks at academics, but extracurriculars as well, so I recommend prospective students to get involved in their school and/or community.
