Hey, I'm not sure how active this community is, but I figured I'd post because I need some insight.
I'm a senior in high school, and I'm applying to FU in a few weeks. If I get in, I'd like to go, but therein lies the problem: GETTING IN.
I'm really a little too anxious about admissions to all the schools I'm applying to, so I was hoping you all could put my fears to rest. I scored an 1830 on the SAT, which is roughly equivalent to a 1220 on the old scale. I have taken SAT II's, so if they're used for placement, I have them. I took three SAT II's, and my scores range from 620 to 660 (out of 800). I'm taking the SAT once more next month, and I'm hoping to break 2000 (2000 = 1330-ish). Are these scores in the range needed for admission to FU? My extra curricular activities are also pretty extensive. I've been involved with the musical theater productions since freshman year, I'm on Student Council, I'm a Eucharistic Minister, I do a lot of service work inside and outside of school, I'm the treasurer of the music honor society, and I'm also a member of the French National Honor Society. My GPA is about 3.5ish, which I'm hoping to bring up this semester. So, what are my chances of admission? I'm sorry if this is the most frivolous post you've ever had on here, but I didn't know where else to ask.
Any help or input is greatly appreciated.
I was reading in previous posts that a lot of students are "stuck up rich kids" with Coach and Vera Bradley bags and whatnot. Is that true? It sounds a lot like my high school, so it should be an easy transition :p
Also (yeah, the questions just keep coming), what's the general attitude towards freshmen? I know at my high school, we have a lot of events with upperclassmen to try to make the freshmen feel more comfortable, and I'm wondering if FU kind of embraces them, or if the upperclassmen are just nice for a few weeks, and then go back to mocking and scorning the freshmen. I hope the latter doesn't hold true, that's so juvenile.
Thanks for your time =)
