Many colleges put a great deal of weight on student ACT/SAT test scores when considering applications. Cappex can help you see how you rank compared to students who have been accepted to DePauw University
My tips for prospective students would be to: try a GCB (or GCCB) from Marvin's, bring plenty of winter clothes because it gets pretty cold here, don't take a W course until your sophomore year, and get a library card at the Putnam county library.» Read More
DePauw is a very strong liberal arts college and this is to your advantage. Take the time to look at the courses available (at any school honestly) and try to choose a broad selection because you don't always know what you want to major in and it can always change. At DePauw they really make you explore every type of class. Ones you would never think to take. Also take advantage of the winter term available. I went to China my freshman year. They even gave me scholarship money to help fund the trip. It was what I thought to be a once in a lifetime opportunity, but now I have the opportunity to return because of DePauw. You also have the chance to have so much spirit here. Everything on campus is pretty much run by the students, so all of the pride and spirit is genuine. Although we are a small school we have just as much opportunity to show spirit. We even have one of the longest running rivalries with Wabash College.» Read More
I think one of the must difficult things about coming here is that as diverse as DePauw wants to make their student body seem, it isn't. I'm from NYC so my diverse is not DePauw diverse. Also people here are very friendly and very happy all the time. Which comes with it's own pros and cons. Visit the school first and asking different kinds of students about their experience. I fell in love with the school as soon as I visited but what I failed to do was ask important questions.» Read More
Come for an overnight visit. Day tours and sitting in on classes are helpful, but staying overnight with a current student is the best way to get real, honest information about DePauw and what you want out of it versus what others are getting from it. Ask lots of questions. Even if you're not sure if your question was already answered or you think part of your criteria for a college isn't that important, ask. You'll be better off in the long run feeling entirely comfortable with your decision. Find out about programs that you have already taken part in in high school or see how you would be able to start one if DePauw doesn't have it.» Read More
