Im from Maryland and this year CP was super hard to get into. BC and Towson arent as hard tho


what was your sat n gpa?
Feb 15, 2011 @ 21:19
^I got accepted to DePaul but I'm worried it would be tough w/o the typical college experience & it being a pretty big commuter school when I would be there from out-of-state
Feb 15, 2011 @ 21:39
yeah imma take pre calc again like online or something. I cud potentially raise my term gpa to a 4.0 if I got a's both semesters. btw i had a friend that graduated in 2009 and she had about the same gpa (3.7-3.8 avg) and got accepted to SB but not Davis. It seems like davis was just really selective in 2009 though cuz I know some ppl that had above that average like 4.0+ range and still didn't get in. So i'm honestly shit confused about the admissions. I'm just concerned that even if i get hella hella good SAT scores then I still won't get accepted into the higher tier UCs.In the lower tier, i've been to Santa Cruz and I wasn't feelin the campus too much, idk bout Riverside and Merced but i've heard riverside really isnt that good of a UC. idk tho.


riverside ain't that bad, check that shit out for yourself ♥♥♥♥♥. merced is a motherfucking joke.

Feb 16, 2011 @ 19:22

OK guys might be right. I applied to 2 schools early action, got into both and got scholarships from both. I think they may have given me the scholarship anyway, but idk. just do early action just in case. youll get it out of the way fast. while my friends bitched about college apps, i stayed raking in acceptance letters smokeyfacesmokeyface

In general it's probably just better to apply early for the simple fact that you'll get a decision earlier and then be able to relax a little. And colleges only have a certain amount of money set aside for scholarships so if you apply earlier they'll have more money therefore they're gonna be more generous with it.
Feb 18, 2011 @ 07:18
early action: gets decision faster
early decision: means you're contractually binded to go to that school, thus it increases your chances

early action does not.

Does anyone know anything about exchange students going to study in America, I wouldn't mind doing that but I have no idea about it
Feb 18, 2011 @ 08:06
Fuck school (only if your dreams don't require it)
Feb 20, 2011 @ 19:21
will early action increase or decrease your chance in getting into a college?

or will remain neutral?
Feb 20, 2011 @ 19:25
im asking if it will decrease my chance, though.
Feb 20, 2011 @ 19:27
Why is everyone talking about UC? Well I go to Alabama A&M University.

way above average admitted stats -> increases chances.

around or below average -> decrease.

the decrease in chance is just what i've HEARD. the rationale is that they will just toss your app usually instead of deferring you to regular admissions where you would compete against a less-qualified pool of applicants.

how ya'll looking at ArtInstitute? Well worth it?
Feb 20, 2011 @ 23:56
some people say that it's bad to apply early action if your application doesn't stand out cause your average app will be compared with all the overachievers w/ spectacular apps who decided to apply early. this doesnt really follow what happened w/ me though. i got into both EA schools i applied to, but my GPA was definitely below both of their middle 50%. and your chances decrease even if your app goes to the RD pool after getting rejected EA.

Depending on your Uni and course, most places in the UK have study abroad programs.

yah, SLO is gonna have the best program for that. FAFSA is pretty good, I get 2 grand a quarter from it. Hopefully you get just as lucky. Although that only came in my second year
