Family ties and tradition are a big deal atAug 08 2012History/Histories (art history/etc.)
Family ties and tradition are a big deal at SLU, and I genuinely think that it's apart of their admissions consideration! 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.

Apply to the additional merit scholarships when you fill out Common App. SLU is very generous with their scholarships, and even if you don't think you qualify for financial aid, if you show a strong interest in SLU and have fairly good grades, you will be supported by the school. :)
