Essay (14) |
Don't just focus on grades, while important, it seems the university focuses on extra-curricular activities quite a bit, especially those that show independence (projects of your own design and imperative) and socialization (clubs, groups, leadership positions).

| May 21 2013 | To get accepted you write an essay and attend an interview...but just about everyone gets accepted. This place isn't that competitive.
Western is getting more selective about the students they choose, so you need to make yourself stand out on your application. Good scores are always helpful, but in the essays write about something that stands out and something that actually has importance to you. Don't be afraid to challenge the readers-- this is college now and that's what you do here. Good luck!

WWU is a fairly easy school to get into. I didnt fret too much on the application. The essay prompt was simple and easy to write an essay about. My final GPA coming out of highschool was a 3.5 but I have friends who were accepted with a 3.2-3.3 GPA. I also had a few friends who were rejected with GPA betwen 3.1-2.8. I was active on the school swim team for 2 years, held positions in three clubs, and had 200+ hours of community service. When I attended WWU in my junior summer for a college camp, the admission counsel at WWU said that the top three things they look at when they view application is, your transcript (GPA and rigor of classes. Ie. IB, AP or Honors), your essay and your extra curriculars. While you may think this is the bread and butter to any admission process I saw the admission counsel look long and hard over the essays the most often. At the end of the day, if you have a B average and so-so test scores WWU is an easy school to get into.
