It's easy to apply and get inAug 21 2012Computer Science
It's easy to apply and get in. Just go on their website and apply. The college seems very desperate to get you in the door, it's almost too easy like a "for-profit" school. Getting financial aid is easy although don't be fooled. They will make you take out loans if you don't have enough and they do want alot of money to come here. Don't be lured in my the Mac/iPad program. It's a very "marketed" school trying to make themselves look like they are the best (when they are not).

I highly recommend you visit the campus and meet with the people in charge of your desired major before coming here. There are alot of screwballs in charge of this place. Also the Dean is very nasty and rumor has it "nuns" at this college make decisions over things that go on even with money.

If you are considering this along with other well respected colleges, choose another one. In the same area/counties there is CAL-U, Penn State, University of Pittsburgh, Robert Morris University, Dusquene, and Carnegie Mellon. This college doesn't deserve the money it takes from students and for what it cost there are better schools.

Now that Seton Hill has moved to the NCAAFeb 18 2007Journalism
Now that Seton Hill has moved to the NCAA in sports, it's harder to get in. Take as many upper level classes as you can, and be prepared to write an entrance essay. Good luck.
