What makes an application really stand out: Other than high GPA and high ACT scores, I look for consistency in high school classes. I also take into account that many high school students have jobs that they balance with sports and academics. This can show good time management skills, which is essential in college.
What would you say to a student who isn't sure whether CBU is the right place for them: Come visit! Looking at the website and printed materials can only show you so much. A campus visit is an opportunity to see the campus and witness what everyday life is like for a CBU student.
One piece of advice for a successful application: If you are not happy with your test score, TAKE IT AGAIN!
