I highly recommend, if you are able, visiting campusAug 05 2015Perfomance Arts
I highly recommend, if you are able, visiting campus. Our faculty and Admissions staff will do everything they can to make it feasible for you to attend Sweet Briar. Regarding the application, I would suggest to just share yourself and your story. Be genuine. Sweet Briar is very much a tight-knit, family-like environment. They want to know who you are as an individual and how you will help this community learn and grow in new and unique ways.
Keep your grades in good standingJun 22 2015Language - French/Spanish/etc.
Keep your grades in good standing. Go visit and speak to an Admissions Director. Go to a local alumnae lunch or event. I played sports and had my coach write a letter and call the coach there and express my interest.

Sweet Briar isn't very hard to get in -Sep 08 2014PreMed and Medical
Sweet Briar isn't very hard to get in - they accept about 80-90% of applicants. However, you have to be prepared for academic vigor - the classes are hard and the professors expect you to do your work. That being said, there are also a ton of resources to help you succeed.
