ACT: 26 Female
It was not very difficult to get inSep 10 2013Education
It was not very difficult to get in. Work on your GPA, SAT/ACT, and extracurriculars. They give scholarships based on ACT rather than GPA, so raise that as much as you can. There is a deadline that you need to have applied by in order to be considered for scholarship; keep an eye out for that.
ACT: 26 Female
I slacked in high school, barely got a 3Jan 28 2012Business - Management and Administration
I slacked in high school, barely got a 3.5, managed to pull a 26 on my ACt, but still got accepted and a yearly scholarship. However my extracurriculars and leadership positions got my acceptance. Samford accepts around 85% of their applicants, so you got a good shot. Even if you have average grades, with average test scores, you might have a shot.
ACT: 26 Male
