So if you have a sibling, parent, or grandparent who attended SLU, don't forget to mention it. You can even receive a 2,500 dollar grant for it.
SAT scores were also optional when I applied, to take time on the other parts of your app.

Nov 22 2010Perfomance Arts My grades in high school were terrible, I had a 2.5 GPA, but I did very well on the SAT and ACT and submitted those. I also came and did an interview with admissions. My interview skills are decent, so that may have helped. An interview probably helps at any small school.
