I had grades and scores near the 75th percentile,Feb 17 2015Business - Management and Administration
I had grades and scores near the 75th percentile, but my extracurriculars were below average. Again, it's all about marketing yourself and making Villanova seem like a place you will thrive, even if you did not in high school. But if you come, don't repeat your high school tactics; get involved and do as much as you can. You'll feel like a better person, it's great for your resume, and even if it doesn't "count" for Law or Med school, good ECs give you a great background as a person, which will help you in the long run.

I came here as a cross registrant from Rosemont College. I don't have any advice to how to enter as a first-year student.

If you do want to go here make sure that your grades and ECs are strong, Villanova loves ECs. They particularly like volunteer work.

Good statsFeb 25 2012Other
Good stats. I don't even think they read my essay because I wrote it last minute and swear it could have probably been written as a generic essay by a fifth grader about being a nice person.

To get in I wrote a good essay andDec 06 2011Civil Engineering
To get in I wrote a good essay and made sure they knew I was a well rounded individual. List activities. Sports. Clubs. etc. Especially if you have a leadership position in something. Also, good SATs don't hurt either.
SAT: 1910 Male
