Sep 28 2014Political Science
I was mostly looking at schools with acceptance rates below 25%, while Dickinson has a 45% acceptance rate. It was a safety school and I was awarded a large scholarship, which was a large reason that I chose the school. It certainly fits a large group of people, but it's also not right for some, certainly if you like city life.
ACT: 32 Male
May 01 2014Archaeology
I took classes there in high school. But only go to Dickinson if you're interested in political science, environmental studies/science, history, or one or two other majors. Other departments, specifically archaeology, are not good (downright awful in the case of archaeology).

Other than be very active in high school, maintain excellent academics in terms of grades and extracurricular activities outside of school. You have to stand out in order to get accepted.
SAT: 2083 Female
May 01 2011Art & Design Department
I would recommend knowing what major direction you are interested in would reduce you risk of transferring to somewhere else a lot. Also, make sure you want to stay in the same community for 4 years.

Nov 10 2010Neuroscience/Cognitive Science
I was 7th of 250 in my hs class and took six APs, getting a 4 or above on 5 of them.
I suggest taking AP classes, because even though you can get accepted without them, they will help prepare you for the coursework.
SAT: 1490 Female
Nov 08 2010Archaeology
I suggest that you talk to the admissions department of Dickinson before you send in your application. Dickinson keeps track of emails sent to admissions and notes if students have been to information sessions or tours. The more active you are, the more it seems that you are very eager to come to the school.
