Notre Dame for the Non-Catholic -- Admissions and Undergrad Experience
Posting in the Parents Forum for privacy reasons. My rising senior has visited and researched quite a few schools this past year and has honed in on University of Notre Dame as a first choice. She has the stats for it, although we all know how difficult admissions can be for these schools. My question is whether there are any Notre Dame alumni, students, or parents out there who could comment on their (or their child's) experience as a non-catholic. We aren't catholic, in fact rarely attend church at all, and Dartmouth has been her first choice for months up until last week. Will her chances for admission at Notre Dame be lower because she isn't catholic? And if admitted, will she feel welcome and have a good experience there? If it's relevant, her stats are SAT 1570, GPA 4.0 UW, Subject Tests 750+, lots of APs. Thanks in advance for any comments. This has kind of come out of left field for us, although we did really enjoy our tour there.
