| UNH says: |
University of New Haven has a holistic approach when reviewing
an applicant for admission to the university. Admissions counselors
consider a strong college preparatory curriculum, along with a student's
personal essay and letter's of recommendation. In addition, students
may request an interview with an admissions officer if they
would like to explain special circumstances regarding their application, as
well as to get to know the university better.
the university is interested in a strong, well rounded student
who has shown the desire and commitment to work hard
and challenge his/her self, and is involved in clubs, organizations,
sports, extra-curricular activities and/or community service.
Applications are reviewed on
a rolling basis, however due to an increase in popularity
of the university, student's are encouraged to complete their applications
as soon as possible. "

I stayed focused in school. Took many AP and IB course through out and stayed active at my school (joining a club, or in my case Marching Band). Try to do well on your SATs and/or ACTs. My dedication and grades brought me many scholarships, plus all the IB and AP courses I took has given me enough credits to almost be a whole year ahead. I suggest to give it your all to pursue something that you are going to love to do!

| Jul 06 2012 | Just make sure you have a lot of extracurricular activities, community service, and good grades...that will help outweigh bad SAT scores. At the beginning of the enrollment season UNH is very selective, scrutinizing GPAs and SAT scores. However, as the start of the school semester draws nearer and enrollment numbers are down every and anyone can be admitted, regardless of academic quality. As they may say, "If there are empty dorms beds, they must be filled. A paying student is a paying student."
I will not deny that a few years ago getting in was as simple of filling out the application and practically being accepted on the spot. In the last 2 or 3 years however, the University has been advertising like crazy and enrollment is quite competitive. Test scores are important but they aren't everything. Admissions staff are looking for well rounded students. I suggest joining a sports team, joining a club, gaining leadership roles or volunteering in your school or community. If you are looking at unh be sure to attend "charger days" when you can tour campus and open house to have an overview of the campus.
