I was just very involved in high school and made sure that I was a well-rounded student. Be involved in many extra curricular activities, get good grades, do lots of community service and have leadership positions. You can submit your SAT or ACT scores, but it is not necessary!

If you want to go to Sacred Heart, justJun 11 2012Biology
If you want to go to Sacred Heart, just apply early and be yourself. Of course, you need to have good grades in high school but aside from that, they want to see that you were involved in other programs in high school to show that you can handle doing other things on top of your academics. Go on the tour and take the interview so the admissions staff can get to kinow you and they will do what they can to know you.
