Just talk about how good you are at sportsMar 08 2004Political Science
Just talk about how good you are at sports. In fact, I wasn't even very good at all but I was on a few teams in high school and all through my interview the women was asking me if I would be on a team at SHU. If you're not into sports or being an arrogant frat guy or soriety girl then don't waste you're time coming.
Honestly though - they did respect how hard I worked in HS with a great scholarship - but sports and sport related majors are #1 in SHU's book.

I applied and wrote an essayJan 29 2004Computer Science
I applied and wrote an essay. Got decent financial aid. I was offered full tuition to Marywood University but I turned it down to go here because I love the atmosphere so much. Apply ASAP because you will get more fin aid - i applied kinda late to all the colleges because I have a procrastination problem. If you get accepted and decide to go - get your deposit in ASAP or you'll get stuck in a triple, which happened to me and it totally sucks.

I fooled around in high school, and that is the only reason i went here. To all high school students. Work hard and try to get into a good school. I'm stuck here for the rest of the year, but you don't have to be.
