| | Seriously if you came out of high school with over a D and a combined SAT score of over 1200 (and don't have a serious disciplinary record) you're pretty much in. People might not realize that they are attending College, to educate themselves, to get a degree and then give back to the community. Many people see college as an opportunity to get away from mommy and daddy and get so drunk they might even have to visit the ER. It is good to have fun, but... what type of fun are you?re looking for? We might not realize the amount of money our parents are paying for us to go to a good school, and we complain about not having a party to go, instead of getting involve in the community, creating activities or even looking for internships for the future (if you want to have a feature, this doesn't work in beer pong) Is hard for me to believe how parents get upset because the university does not provide enough fun for their precious, smart, beautiful child. I have to be honest, if you don?t make the first move NOBODY anywhere will make it for you. Look around you and the beautiful environment, you are so near the ocean, and surrounded by culture. The classes are small and personalized that you are not a number but a face with a name. I'm an international student. My parents, just as yours want the best for me. I was not going to attend salve because I keep reading reviews like this, until one student took the time to write and inspire me. I?m so glad I made the decision. My major is psychology with a minor in neuroscience. I?m involved in research, and an internship that works with autistic children. I have been doing this since sophomore year. I'm a writer, and I have published two books already. Salve has helped me in each one of these achievements. I gave more weight to school than to weekend drinking. But this is up to you not to the university or the RA or the student activities. If you are interested to know more you can write to me at I will be happy to answer any of your questions.
Really, Salve seems to literally accept anyone. Unless you have an extensive juvenile criminal record, scored below a 1300 on the SATs, and/or had a GPA in the 2 range, I don't see how Salve could NOT accept you, based on the student body.

I went to one of Salve's open house events in the fall and loved it. Make sure you take the time to go to the seminars and tables that cater to what you're interested in. I remember going to the study abroad table and had a great chat with students there.

If you really loved looking at Salve, I highly recommend applying early action. (Which I did) Before Christmas I had my acceptance letter which was great. I applied early action to all the schools I applied to (Loyola in Maryland, Stonehill, Merrimack, and Assumption) which I loved because I had decisions before Christmas or in early January.
After you get accepted, make sure you go to Connection's Day. It can settle any feelings of uncertainty about going, or cement your intent to enroll.
