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!
Syracuse is a well known school for many reasons other than just than our sports and popular alumni. Syracuse has been my dream school since I was very young. In high school I maintained a 3.9 GPA and had a 30 on my ACT. My sat was very low-1700 but I wrote a very concise supplement essay and expressed my interest for Syracuse. Some majors aren't very competitive and people with 3.5 can get in. For Newhouse, Engineering, Whitman and Falk a GPA of about 3.7 will definitely earn you a spot even if your test scores are average.
also I joined many clubs such as key club, honor society and Korean culture club. syracuse pretends to have a wholistic approach but from what I've heard that some applicions are tossed aside for better students. people here will tell you that you just have to be rich but even the New Jersey kids at very smart!
