Facts & Statistics

Tips for Getting In
  • Ask teachers (or anyone else that you deem appropriate) that know you well for recommendations.
  • Be involved in your local community.
  • Be sure to call admissions and schedule a tour/interview/etc.
  • Be yourself. Don't try to fit any "Skidmore mold" because there isn't one.
  • Go on a campus tour.
  • Have a strong academic background and work hard in high school!
  • Have an on-campus interview (if possible).
  • Highlight your interest in learning; remember, you're applying to school.
  • If you want to apply Early Decision, do it! (There's also Early Decision II.)
  • Show depth of interest and passion-quality of extracurriculars, not quantity.
  • Skidmore is constantly looking for more diverse classes, for students from different socioeconomic, racial, ethnic, and geographic backgrounds.
  • Take time on your personal essay; Skidmore wants to get to know you!
Things I Wish I Knew Before Coming To School
  • Freshman year, you'll most likely be put into a triple. Learn to live with others!
  • Pre-orientation is awesome. You'll meet a group of people before school starts, including your pre-orientation leaders, which are older students-a nice connection to have when starting off at college.
  • Yes, it snows. Bring snow boots and/or rain boots, and of course, a winter jacket. If you have a car, bring an ice scraper and possibly a shovel-just in case.
