| | AP classes really show you are dedicated and can even get you out of some classes! So if you have the opportunity to take some, do so! You also don't have to send in your ACT score if you are a por test taker. Interview instead and you still have a good chance. Ever since Dr. Carter has arrived, I guess the academics has gotten more challenging and professors are more strict and teaching freshmen students at more challenging levels, which is great. Therefore, admissions at Johnson C. Smith University is much more competitive and challenging than it once was. I had to type essays, send my transcripts with a grade point average no lower than 3.0 GPA, along with letters of recommendations in order to be accepted. However, my GPA was exactly a 4.0 grade point average when applying, therefore, I was offered the academic scholarship of $20,000 which was the most exciting. I did not know that it was split up each year and semester, so, big thing to know before attending is, UNDERSTAND YOUR AWARD LETTERS OR SCHOLARSHIPS BEFORE ATTENDING, know how much you will have to pay out of pocket and maybe even call the Financial Aid office and have them break it down to you via email or phone. All of the staff and faculty are very welcoming and respectful here at Smith, so if you are looking forward to attending, be ready to receive a stellar education, the Smith-way! GO BULLS! To get into the university, all you had to do was send in your transcript and ACT score. The main reason I decided to choose this university was because of the scholarships that they offered me. I received $11,000 per year with a grant/aid of $4,000 per year. Overall, it cost me only $13,000 to go here at the start, but because of inflation, I have had to pay roughly $1,000-$1,500 more per year. Because of my high GPA and fairly good ACT/SAT, I wish I would have gone to a university that would have suited me better. Concordia University Wisconsin seems like a Junior College to me because of the school size and the hardness of classes. I have always been involved in a variety of activities from an early age. Throughout my childhood I have been involved in many activities such as: Girl Scouts, School Choir, Dance, Varsity Cheerleading team, Yearbook Sports Editor, Gymnastics, Religious School teacher's aide, and Pop Warner junior coach. I did all of these activities while keeping up a good GPA throughout the years. I also had two jobs prior to starting college. I currently still work as a camp counselor at YMCA Capital District-Camp Nassau in Guilderland, New York. I also worked as a teacher's assistant at my temple (Beth Emeth) in Albany, New York for four years. I recommend students to get involved in a variety in activities in high school- both a part of the school and activities outside the school. Having a part-time job during high school is a great way to show time management, all while keeping up with studies. Getting into college is a hard process, so the more activities you are involved in, all while keeping up with schoolwork, shows schools that you can manage your time well in a successful manner!
