(I forgot my SAT score, i think it was 1640 or 1604) I basically completed all the requirements (SATS, letters of Rec, transcript, etc.). This was my first choice and only school I applied too (I was accepted on Immediate Decision Day) because of the Psych programs, closeness to NYC, far enough away from home to dorm but enough to drive back for doctor appointments or emergencies, holidays, etc. I would recommend this school but base it on major (psych for example may be strong than say music education), and all of its other qualities.
For me, the other big draw is the size, big enough where you don't know everyone yet small enough that professors know you by name, not number.

I applied for the nursing major early decision and got accepted. I was pretty below the criteria (3.4 gpa, 22 act) but decided to apply anyways since I really loved the school. Even if you don't meet the criteria for a specific major, I'd recommend applying anyways. I think I got in because my essay was good and I had a decent amount of extracurriculars.

This school is way too hard to get into for the material learned and quality of teachers. They try to make their academics look too good and it doesn't work for them. Don't bother.
Music - Composition/Theory

I had 80 GPA and 1800 SAT. Not the best student or best test taker but I believe my essays were excellent and exactly "what they wanted."

I see people all over the boards, some have 2000 SAT and 4.0 GPAs (Usually the "Academy Students"), and some have 1200 SAT and still get in. Basically just have a decent GPA and/ or SAT. It really isnt that hard to get in, and if you arnt from the surrounding county, youre one step above 90% of the other students.
