Syracuse is my dream school and I am planning on applying ED to the College of Arts and Sciences. I know my GPA is low, but it's been an upward trend. For my junior year I had an UW GPA of a 3.6 and I took 2 AP classes and 3 honors courses. I've also had a rough time adjusting to my schools as I have attended three different high schools. If you need any more details let me know! Thanks!

    My daughter is a senior and loves Cuse! She too was an ED applicant. Strong recommendations and good 1st quarter/semester senior year grades will be a big boost. Although not required, my daughter had her counselor send her 1st quarter senior grades as she too had a very strong upward trend and a lot of APs her senior year. Have a strong senior year and you will have a great chance. Also coming in with a lot of AP credits was great for my daughter. Finally, you may want to check out the CLEP tests in the spring as Cuse is generous CLEP credit as well.
    Good luck!
