<p>Yay journalism! It's my major at Pepp.</p>

<p>Your GPA/ACT are about average for Pepperdine, on the lower end, but your extracurriculars look great! Just gotta nail that essay.</p>

<p>I remember how scared and nervous I was with my stats because Pepperdine was my number one choice. I made a 28 on my ACT, so what eased my mind is the fact that Pepperdine superscores. To the admission staff, you probably have higher than a 27. Like gwu_girl said, ace the essay and your definitely in.</p>

<p>Pepperdine is also my first choice!
You seem to have good stats, good luck! and hopefully see you Fall 2011 :)</p>
