can honestly say that if it had not been for
the individual attention i was able to have at high
point, i do not think that i would have been
admitted into medical school right after college. dr. sapp helped
me more than i could ever imagine with everything from
reviewing my application essays to giving me interview advice. furthermore,
those who wrote me letters of recommendation really KNEW me,
which was a huge help. i grew so much as
a person at high point. being involved on campus helped
me gain a great deal of responsibilty and communication skills.
i could not be happier with my college experience. i
feel as if i received an excellent education, grew socially,
and established relationships which i knew will last for decades
the campus is absolutely amazing. you'll never
see anything quite like it at any other college. i
will not have accommodations like i did at high point
for another 15 years probably. theres TONS to do if
you get involved. remember that: get involved. i was never,
ever bored as a student at high point.
for getting in:
of course you want to
do well on standardized exams and during high school, but
the admission committee especially focuses on your personality and how
much you want to get involved. they don't want students
who just want to sit in their rooms all day.
yea, maybe you can get IN with an ok personality,
but getting a scholarship is a whole other ballgame, which
requires at least two interviews.
take a tour, meet
some professors in your predicted field of study, show lots
of enthusiasm, and always ask a couple of questions. helps
to stay in touch with the admissions office, also. high
point is a school that, although is has increased in
size since i graduated 1.5 years a go, will remember
you. love that school!
