Essay (1) |
| | I really didn't do as much as I wanted but at WIU there are sooo many activities, there is something for everybody, and if you don't see anything that you think is for you, you can always come up with an activity. I had a 21 on my ACT and a 2.3 GPA in high school. It's not hard to get in. If you dont meet either the GPA minimum which is a 2.5 or the ACT minimum which is a 21, you will still get in under a program called Academic Services. All that means is you are on "warning" and you have to meet with your advisor 8 times a semester and you can't rush a fraternity or sorority. It's not a big deal at all. A lot of people are on probation or warning and they get off of it pretty fast. To get off of probation/warning, you need to complete 24 credit hours and have a 2.5 GPA minimum.
i didn't do any thin much to get in. To be real with you I didn't think I would get in at all an transferring from a two year college and my grads from this school are not really good. I only have a 2.3 gpa and did not take the sat and still got in without any hard work so everyone else should be fine. The best way to start is to get to know your floor. Some of my best friends are the guys I got to meet/hang out with on my floor. A year later, we all managed to get rooms on the same floor again with eachother in the upperclassmen dorms! There are always activities going on at WIU. Get involved!
