I got a 1600 on my SATs, was 2nd in my class, hadApr 12 2005Linguistics
I got a 1600 on my SATs, was 2nd in my class, had extracurricular activities and leadership roles out the ears, and had a good interview. Wrote my personal statement about discovering grace under fire. Something among those got me a full-tuition scholarship, and I'm told it wasn't the SATs but they won't say anything else. Everyone here is interesting and multitalented though. I recommend having a passion for a certain subject or subjects; they love stuff like that in admissions.
SAT: 1600 Female
I thought my essay was the strongest part ofMar 03 2005English
I thought my essay was the strongest part of my application. Discussed my passion for art, reading, and appreciating the little details about life. Athletics help with admission, and these days I'd say an interview is a must.

Getting admitted isn't that hard, just be a good,Jul 25 2004Genetics
Getting admitted isn't that hard, just be a good, well-rounded student. If you're looking for scholarships, though, go for a high SAT/ACT score and make sure you have extracurriculars to write essays about.
ACT: 36 SAT: 1490 Female
I got into this school by getting a good SAT scoreDec 30 2003Political Science
I got into this school by getting a good SAT score. Less preference was put upon high school grades. Most students I've talked to were this way. In my opinion, high SATs and lower school grades are a good sign of unmotivated SLACKERS, the majority of which were not involved in extracurriculars. Case in point - my freshman class had the highest SAT scores in school history and the worst first semester GPA. The school also doesn't interview its applicants. This allows a lot of comple weirdos into the school. Ever seen Rainman? I know about a dozen kids like Dustin Hoffman's character. The school should have an interview process to weed out losers who drain the student body of morale and character.
SAT: 1400 Male
