<p>Shown a lot of interest (Info sessions, campus visit, etc.)</p>


<p>Gotta show more leadership and EC, whats ur rank and major?</p>

<p>My school doesn't rank. Major is probably going to be either Business or Journalism.</p>

<p>Well like I said show more leadership and EC, are you applying for scholars?</p>

<p>Nope. I heard that you generally need a minimum of 1500 on the SATs. I'd be happy just to get in. Are you applying early?</p>

<p>not true.. my friend got in last year w/ a 1350 & great ec's</p>

<p>Yeah thats not true, you can make up for lost points on SAT with essay and EC</p>

<p>Well as you said, my ECs are nothing to call home about. I mean 1380 is like right in the middle of their score range, and 3.8 is only a little higher than their average, so I really doubt it.</p>

<p>Well, I still say u have a chance definitely if u apply early. Good Luck and try to show thta uve volunteered in the community or something that wuld make u look unique</p>
