Essay (3) |
I was a well-rounded student in high school. I "tried my best, but left the rest." This college loves well-balanced students with a desire to make a difference, in small kind ways as well as large ways. Its especially a very green university and loves outdoor enthusiasts. If you're a geniunely good person who cares about others, you're achievements will naturally document themselves and others will notice. And the University of Minnesota will notice first, because it understands that a well-balanced, healthy student is the most high achiving student.

| Jun 28 2012 | As a transfer student, I was surprised at how easy it was to get into the University as compared to friends I had talked to who had applied and were rejected from attending the U of M when they applied straight out of high school. Not certain if I would have got in had I not gone to a private college and gotten good grades there first before transferring out, but either way, was shocked when I got in and my ACT-score-of-32 friends did not. I am in the College of Science and Engineering. It was NOT easy to get in. My ACT score was 32 and my high school gpa was 3.9 unweighted. At the freshman parent orientation, my parents were told that the freshman class (2015) had an average gpa of 3.9 and the average ACT score was a 33. I thought I was better than average going in. I guess not. It does help to be a girl. I happened to choose an unpopular major and then found out it really wasn't for me. I changed my major within the college with no problems at all. I suppose if you wanted to be sneaky, you could do the same- only on purpose.
