The Gym is a wonderful place that offers classes around the clock.

Do your work in high school, get into extra curricular's but depth is more important than breadth- it's better to see that you were in theater for 4 years than that you at some point took part in 26 different clubs, find some way to talk about diversity in your essays... Seriously though, diversity is important to me but it is SUPER important to VCU and if you talk about being driven and wanting to succeed and also loving a diverse campus you'll be golden.

Not hard to get in. Have an ACT score of 22 or SAT score of 1030. Sometimes lower exceptions are made because of GPA. I came in with a 3.8 GPA from community college. The minimum GPA is 2.0-2.5 and there is a good chance you'll get in. But like I said earlier, many will come here but most will not graduate in 4-6 years. It's simply the truth

Getting into VCU was not as difficult as I had originally intended. Granted, Arts is a whole different story and if you want to get into their Arts program, well let's just say you better be pretty good.
I had a 3.1 and a 1060 SAT, and did not take an ACT. I believe if you show immense interest in the school, they will notice you. I can say that confidently being in the lower 25%. This is and continues to be my dream school.
