VCU is ridiculously easy to get into, and isSep 26 2016Criminal
VCU is ridiculously easy to get into, and is crowded because it accepts all the rejects from UVA, VT, and JMU.

Getting in is not difficult unless you're on aSep 11 2016Perfomance Arts
Getting in is not difficult unless you're on a pre-med track.
If you're applying/auditioning for VCUarts, however, it's going to be a lot more competitive. Basically just maintain decent grades in high school and work hard at your craft and you're in.

You will get in for sure if you didJan 08 2016Biology
You will get in for sure if you did okay in high school. I wouldn't worry about it too much, admissions here aren't very tough. HOWEVER many enroll here but not many finish, a lot will be asked of you at VCU.

Get above average SATNov 17 2015Perfomance Arts
Get above average SAT. Decent GPA. Come for a visit. Be prepared if you are auditioning, make sure you are memorized and have a decent understanding of piano skills/ music theory if you are auditioning for music. For theatre, be sure you have audition experience, are well rounded (as much voice/dance lessons as you can--- not 100% necessary, but an easy way to score points). Overall for auditions, stay calm, collected, flexible and confident.
