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!
Syracuse is a well known school for many reasonsApr 15 2013PreMed and Medical
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!

just try your best and you will make it

Prospective Newhouse students need a high GPA (above aFeb 07 2011Communications
Prospective Newhouse students need a high GPA (above a 3.4, around a 3.5-3.6) and experience helps. Get the best recommendations possible, get involved in clubs and sports and put a lot of effort into the essay. Most of all, sell yourself to this school if you want to get into it. Tell admissions how you will add to the diversity and culture of this university and how they will benefit from having you here.

Work your ass off in high schoolJan 16 2010Journalism
Work your ass off in high school. The school is self-selective which mean sthe majority of the applicant pool is already qualified to attend so you must make sure you have the grades and test scores to put yourself through the first round of the application process. Essays, recommendations, achievements and extra-curricular will then come into play.
