|Students who got into VCU say:|
Essay (3) |
In order to get accepted to a reputable university and also satisfy my passions and interests, during my high school years, I worked hard earning As and Bs, was involved in sports year round and extra curricular activities, and also took on two foreign languages for all four years (as I knew those subjects would be my specialties in college).

For students aiming to be accepted to VCU, I would recommend taking advantage of your high school's resources as much as possible. Take opportunities to learn about as many subjects as you are capable without stretching yourself too thin. Notice what subjects you tend to excel in, what subjects you are passionate about, and EXPLORE them. Test the waters while you are in high school. By the time your junior year rolls around, I would determine which subjects I would consider studying in college, and try to strengthen my skills and knowledge in those subjects. Finally, work hard, aim for greatness, and do your best to receive good grades BUT do not lose sight of what is truly important to you.
You must have a piercing, a tattoo, and poor grades.

grades are important but they look at alot of factors i had friends who got in with worse grades then others because they were well rounded and able to stand out
| Electrical Engineering|| Apr 10 2010 | If you want to go here you don't have to do much. I got into VCU with really crappy SAT scores but I am doing well here. It seems to me that teachers reward students for just being involved in school, in general. If act like you care, you'll get good grades. Just show up, act like you're doing well, get your degree, and the the F out!!!!!!!!
