My SAT scores were ok, but not AMAZING likeDec 23 2014PreMed and Medical
My SAT scores were ok, but not AMAZING like most people I have met at UConn. I had a total of 1740 I think, but my GPA was very good. I was second in my class and had a 3.9 Gpa. I received a lot of awards for volunteering and helping my community. I took college classes (3 every semester) starting my junior year at a local University in Hartford. Just make sure that you have a very good GPA, get involved in extra curriculum activities, and have acceptable SAT scores.

I went to Penn State University first, but seeingMar 12 2014Finance
I went to Penn State University first, but seeing as I am from Connecticut the price of UConn was better and I transferred after my freshman year, regrettably. I say you get involved right away because you can have a really good social life here. If it weren't for the people I have met since transferring I probably would have left again.
