Work hard in high schoolAug 24 2017Finance
Work hard in high school. You have to have a strong academic record to get in. Be yourself in your essays. Don't let a parent or academic counselor have a heavy hand in them. It's not about grammar or vocabulary; it's about letting the admissions counselor get to know you as a person.
SAT: 1470 Female
To get in, I worked really hard to getJul 11 2015Political Science
To get in, I worked really hard to get great grades, took SAT tutoring, and focused on the extracurricular activities I enjoyed the most, did them to the fullest and got the most meaning out of them. Notre Dame has a strong mission is service so don't be the guy to overload your app and not commit to the clubs. They'd rather see you not only fully commit to activities but to draw a deep meaning from them.

I would recommend visiting campus to get a fullNov 19 2014Undecided
I would recommend visiting campus to get a full feel for the atmosphere of the school. Then, when you apply, include in your essay a deep understanding of the sense of the school that a tour and info session gives you. Alumni and officers here don't care where you're from or who you are, they want qualified applicants who are serious about the school and buy into the elements Notre Dame experience.
SAT: 2270 Male

Work hard in school but also pursue things that you are interested outside of it to make yourself different. Community service is also great!
