I am looking to apply at GU this upcoming Fall. Are there any suggestions that you can give me?

Trojan, you're a good candidate of admissions, although not a lock (many qualified applicants w/ excellent stats, blah, blah, blah)

I would make sure I have a great essay (one good tip is to write it well in advance and send it to everyone you know and get their input)

Also another thing that most applicants overlook is recommendations. One way to get a good reco is target people from whom you want recos and go talk with them over a period of time about your interest in politics and about your interest in GW. This will definately make the rec more personal which could get you a big fat packet in the mail instead of a thin letter

Shelby, what are your stats?

Thanks for your effort. I am going to be a senior, and having been awaiting my "learning disability" results, which would allow me to receive a time extension if found positive. The results of that specific test were found to be negative, and now I have found myself in a bind. The positive test results would have enabled me to take the ACT over again at my own pace. Not being able to do so has dumbfounded. Now I am going into admissions time with a total of 22 for an ACT score and one chance to retake it.

My G.P.A. is 3.9 unweighted.
I am working this year at State Farm Insurance.
I am taking 2 A.P. classes.
Varsity soccer
international club
Key club
much volunteer work
Youth group
Pep club
National honor society
National honor roll
Principal's 4.0 list
Who's Who
Art Club
Animal Club
