Facts & Statistics

Tips for Getting In
  • Apply on time.
  • Be involved in a lot of volunteer work.
  • Focus on writing a strong, personal, and creative essay.
  • Keep consistently good grades.
  • Leadership is a valued quality. Starting a club shows independence.
  • Let your eccentric interests show through.
  • Show interest with follow-up calls to check on your admission status.
  • Stand out with different (from the usual) extracurriculars.
  • Take the SAT seriously.
  • Visit the campus once before you apply.
Things I Wish I Knew Before Coming To School
  • Independent Study Projects (ISPs) truly stress independence. To some extent, they are graded liberally and often not taken seriously by faculty or by students. They serve as a way for students to relieve stress between semesters and explore topics interesting to them. While they can be used as opportunities for serious scholarship, some use them to explore topics of study that they wouldn't usually have the time to explore.
  • Life without a car in the suburban sprawl of Sarasota can prove to be irritating.
  • Some classes are offered only every other year, and it can be difficult to complete requirements if one changes his or her major late in the game.
  • The 10-to-1 student-to-faculty ratio does not mean that you are immune to getting "capped" out of classes. Some courses are just popular, and there is no solution to the problem.
  • When the admissions literature emphasized the fact that New College is for the self-motivated, they weren't kidding. This applies to most aspects of student life. Nobody will hold your hand, and your study habits must be up to par.
