They're up on the Orientation website. I was reading through the FYS offerings and there are some really cool sounding ones. I just can't decide.

Anyone else exempting the Writing Seminar?

    I dunno if I can exempt it :\ In the paper I printed up from the Orientation site it said you needed like a 720 verbal. I got a 4 on the AP Lit so I don't know if that counts.

    For the FYS the ones on Virginia, Baseball, and God look cool/

    Yeah a 4 on the AP Lit test will exempt you. I checked the website.

    Me being stupid didn't send my IB scores to Wake so I have to figure out how to do that because my 7 in English will exempt me. But I also got a 730 on Verbal, so either way I'll exempt it.

    yeah, I'll be exempting the writing seminar, I got a 760 on Verbal

    if the exemptions are the same as in the past, getting the 720+ verbal doesn't make you automatically exempt. if you got over a 720, you have the option of writing some paper, i think, during orientation in an attempt to be exempt. (correct me if i'm wrong?)

    I could be wrong, but I think that you're just automatically exempt.

    Well, if you have the 4 or 5 on AP Lit (or the equivalent on the IB) then you're automatically exempt.

    If you don't have the AP/IB score BUT you have 730+ on SAT Verbal then you can write an essay to exempt the writing seminar.
