I'm from Illinois so I just took the ACTOct 05 2016Journalism
I'm from Illinois so I just took the ACT and not the SAT. I had a very high GPA in high school and was involved in almost every single club and was also in dance team as well. I would say get good grades and have extracurriculars and try to make yourself stand out from the rest. There are A LOT of people who apply to SDSU and you need to catch the eye of the admissions director.

I worked super hard in HS to earn a 4May 17 2015Business - Management and Administration
I worked super hard in HS to earn a 4.0 my last two years. The average GPA for SDSU admissions is a 3.8. My SAT scores were not on par so my saving grace was my GPA. I never took the ACT because the SAT was already too much for me. I would recommend taking AP classes and taking the AP tests because it will really help even if it only knocks out one credit. I passed the AP Lit test and jumped right on into RWS 200 bypassing 100. I hated that class so I am incredibly grateful I took AP Lit and skipped RWS100.

To get in, just make sure your gpa is really highApr 08 2014Chemistry
To get in, just make sure your gpa is really high. People blab on and on about extracurriculars and whatnot, but the #1 thing EVERY college looks at is your GPA. Test scores like the SAT are becoming increasingly irrelevant, but just try to get a good score anyway. Other than that, just volunteer and have fun, because extracurriculars are only a small portion of admissions.
SAT: 2040 Female
