Is it hard to get in Howard? Posted on 11-18-2004
elisa9047

I was wondering if it was hard to get in howard university b/c that is my 1st choice for college. The thing is I'm not the most perfect student. So far I've stayed at a 2.5 g.p.a in high school and I was never involved in that many extracurricular activities. Plus my grades are really bad and I still haven't taken the ACT (not taking SAT). I can apply myself hard it's just my procrastination and laziness. So what do ya'll think and was it hard for y'all?

Howard was my first choice of schools also and I did not have the best gpa. I graduated with a 2.6 I believe. When I applied I wrote a really good essay about how I messed up in high school (academically) but how I had grown from the experience. I believe what helped me was my extra curricular activities and I also called admissions once or twice a week to check the status of my application. Here's a few tips of advice, get your application in as soon as you can! Send a resume! Also the Fine Arts division of the college of arts and sciences is the easiest to get into their gpa requirement is a 2.0. It definetly DOES matter witch school your applying too (arts and sciences, school of B etc.). Howard accepted me with some stipulations they limited me to 13 credit hours first semester so they could monitor my progress. I now have about a 3.5 gpa. You can do it just handle your business and have a little bit of faith! :lol:
hmmm you learn something new everyday....HOPEFULLY if anything...I'll get accepted...and they can accept me with stipulations I DO NOT CARE... allllll I need is just to be accepted PERIOD

I got accept to Howard University with a 2.7 gpa and a 23 on the ACT. I am a very well rounded student wen it comes to activities but it seems to me that Howard isnt too hard to get into(or maybe it is and i just got real lucky).... I think gettin the money to go there is the hardest part :?

i don't think Howard is tooo hard to get in....i have a 3.8 GPA and a 930 on the SAT and a 22 on the ACT but i know my essay was on point and i just got my acceptance letter yesterday....i guess the essay really makes alot of difference as well as your recommendations....

is howard's college of arts and sciences less challenging than its other schools? from reading this post that's the impression i'm getting. also, is anyone in the COAS honors program or know anything they can tell me?
