|Students who got into UMW say:|
Essay (11) |
| | Had a 3.3 gpa, but with a extremely positive trend (2.2 in freshman and 4.2 in senior).
Had about above average SAT scores (1330 w/o writing).
I think my essay was good but nothing spectacular.
I don't know about my recommendation but I imagine it was good, though not raving.
I mentioned a few clubs that I was involved in, though I had no leadership roles.
Overall this is not a hard school to get into. It seems to be either a safety school, not a dream school.
Lots of community service, and extracurricular activities. SAT scores where not bad at all and my essay i worked hard on. Just work hard in high school work on the essay and should be good.

Average stats all around (3.0 GPA, 1270 SAT). Guys have it much easier due to the disproportionate ratio. Out-of-staters will also have a tougher time getting in. Overall, show some interest in the school (take the tour, talk about it in the essay), have above-average grades (3.0+ for guys, 3.5+ for girls) and write a decent essay and you should have a good chance.
