To get into SU, volunteering and extracurriculars are very important. It is more difficult to get into the Architecture, Broadcasting, Human Dynamics, Management, and Music programs than it is to get into the College of Arts and Sciences, but showing that you are a well-rounded student is still very important--no matter which department you are applying to.

I think I did too muchNov 08 2013Communications
I think I did too much. Lol. I did the hand-written application. Paid the fee (Because I thought that would show my eagerness (which is not true)). Made sure I had recommendations that could speak in depth about me. Let Admissions know how passionate I was. My SAT scores were solid but not stellar but I had a really good essay and my recommendations were awesome!
