Facts & Statistics

Tips for Getting In
  • Ask teachers who know you best to write letters of recommendation.
  • Be yourself.
  • Create a good relationship with your admissions counselor.
  • Showcase your diverse interests.
  • Visit the campus.
  • Write an interesting and unique essay.
Things I Wish I Knew Before Coming To School
  • Mount Vernon is the quintessential small town. There's no public transportation, and most mainstream amenities are at least a 20-minute drive away.
  • One Course At A Time is still a lot of work. You could end up reading five books and writing several papers in just one block.
  • The food in the dining hall is not five-star restaurant cuisine.
  • You are automatically put on the 20 meal/week plan, but you can change it the first two weeks of each semester.
