I got into medill--best journalism school in the country

Jul 05 2005Journalism
I got into medill--best journalism school in the country. I was obsessed with looking good on paper-woo! yeah! Medill is a verifiable 3rd grade, at a higher level of course. Youll spend many hours pontificating grammer and spelling.
SAT: 1560 Female

Umm I filled out the application

Jul 01 2005Civil Engineering
Umm I filled out the application. And sent it in. On time. My friend who goes here messed up his application 3 times. So I guess you don't even have to get that right...
SAT: 1410 Female

I transferred from another college my junior year

Jun 09 2005Economics
I transferred from another college my junior year. I did poorly in high school, but was lucky in that I did very well on my SATs and very well in my first college. I was extremely involved (SGA, President of several clubs, etc.) and I definitely think this helped me get into NU.

I would reccomend doing well on the SAT's (1400+ is practically a requirement) and be in the top 10 percent for your high school
SAT: 1550 Male

I did well on the SAT, the SAT II

Jun 02 2005Communications
I did well on the SAT, the SAT II (with 700+ scores) and took the ACT. I also took the most challenging courses in high school, took foreign language to the point of operational fluency; played a musical instrument; and did sports (not excellent, but an average non-varsity player); newspaper -- overall, well-rounded high school with academic rigor.
ACT: 30 SAT: 1400 Female

Got good SATs, lots of APs, decent grades, so-so

May 25 2005Economics
Got good SATs, lots of APs, decent grades, so-so extracurriculars, wrote an interesting application (NU uses a non-standard application)
SAT: 1550 Male
