Admission to college is competitive

October 11, 2006

Albany -- University admission officials say acceptance into college is competitive and tough these days.

At Albany State more than 5,000 people applied for fall semester this year. Fewer than 2,000 were accepted.

Students must have GPA's above 2.2 and meet minimum scores on either the SAT or ACT.

The admissions director says a student's leadership experience can make a difference.

"Leadership skills certainly can play a role in one's prepardness to go to school, but we're always going to look back at the kinds of classes, what did he or she do in those classes, and also test scores. All three of those are vital" said ASU Admissions director Cleveland James.

James also advises students to do their research on a college before applying to avoid wasting time and money on the application process.
