GPA, SAT and ACT Data for Top Virginia Colleges

Sunday April 20, 2014

From tiny liberal arts colleges to large state universities, Virginia has some excellent options for higher education. Nearly all of the state's best schools have holistic admissions, so the admissions folks will be looking for more than good grades and standardized test scores. Challenging high school courses, a well written essay, interesting extracurricular activities and positive letters of recommendation are all important pieces of the admissions equation.

That said, the empirical part of your application is still remarkably important. To see if you numbers are in line for Virginia's top colleges and universities, check out these graphs of GPA, SAT and ACT data for accepted, waitlisted, and rejected students: Christopher Newport University | College of William & Mary | George Mason University | Hampden-Sydney College | Hollins University | James Madison University | Longwood University | Randolph College | Randolph-Macon College | Roanoke College | Sweet Briar College | University of Mary Washington | University of Richmond | University of Virginia | Virginia Military Institute | Virginia Tech | Washington and Lee University

23 Scholarships with June Deadlines

Saturday April 19, 2014

The only thing harder than getting into a selective college is coming up with the money to pay for your education. Many of the country's most elite schools now have a total price tag around $60,000 a year.

June isn't a time when most students are thinking about applications. The majority of seniors are done with their college searches, and most juniors are still working on coming up with a short list of schools. But don't be complacent -- there are billions of dollars out there to help you fund your college education, but you can't win the money if you don't apply. These 23 scholarships with June deadlines range in value from $200 to $20,000. Entry requirements vary from being entrepreneurial to wanting to help pets. Look through the options to see which scholarships match your interests.
