This school is not hard to get into at allFeb 08 2019Undecided
This school is not hard to get into at all. I am a little confused whether they are test optional or not, because when I applied on the Common APP, it says it is, but I did not get my acceptance letter until I sent in my SAT scores so I guess it's not test optional?? Anyway, I had pretty good grades in high school, mainly A's and some B's. I had a pretty good portfolio with a lot of rewards and some volunteer hours. I did not do any clubs or sports in high school and that didn't really matter that much when it came to any of the colleges I applied to for the most part. My SAT scores were not that good, but I think if you have good grades and a good GPA in high school, then the SAT scores don't matter too much.
SAT: 1000 Female
I had a 1390 on my SAT and 2Mar 28 2017Accounting
I had a 1390 on my SAT and 2.8 upon graduating but that was in 2016, So the school is definitely getting higher and higher in requirement I see each year. I wasn't in college now so I can't say much about that.
SAT: 1390 Male

Wasn't hard to get into since I had a decent GPA, MCAS, and SAT scores in high school. I basically just applied and got in without anything special to it.

It is not really hard to get into UMass Dartmouth compared to many colleges out there; however, make sure to demonstrate that you can handle to be challenged academically. There are many ways to do that during high school. The way I did it was getting extremely good grades Junior and Senior year since the previous two years were awful. Also sign up for AP classes, they look amazing on your transcript!
