Of course! I love sharing my OU story. But it was almost 7 years ago when I got accepted, so I don’t remember everything, but here is what I do remember.
My high school GPA was around a 3.4, but I took Advanced Placement courses and my school didn’t weight them, so it probably should have been higher. My ACT score was a 27 and I didn’t take the SAT. I have no idea if I had to have recommendations or not. I did apply and get into the Scripps School of Journalism, so I know that there were a couple extra steps I had to take for that. I don’t remember when I submitted my application, but my acceptance letter is dated December 9th. Also, I was very involved in extracurricular activities during high school.
I walked away from OU was drug away from OU loving absolutely everything about it. It was difficult at times, but I think the transition from high school to college is almost always difficult. And I was five hours away from my family, so that was probably the hardest part. I’m not sure what size school you’re coming from, but OU is pretty big—about 17,000 undergraduate students. But I never felt lost there. Going into it with a decided major probably had a lot to do about that.
I could go on and on, but Tumblr is telling me that I’m too chatty. So if you have any other questions, let me know. Also, I’d love to hear more about you. Might be able to provide some more specific info. Congrats on making a great choice and good luck!
