    GPA isn't the only factor that the admissions committee will review when considering you for application. They will also primarily focus on your participation in extracurricular activities, especially ones that demonstrated leadership and success or had to do with volunteering on a regular basis. In my opinion, Mason is not a competitive school to get into (I believe their acceptance rate hovers around 60%).

    To help with your first steps into college life, get involved with your assigned counselor right away and don't be afraid to ask alot of questions. Also, be sure to follow the admissions steps in detail to make your move -in and academic registration process smoother. Lastly, don't be afraid to reach a hand out to introduce yourself to new faces & make new friends.

My only words of warning are that when it comes to our Chemistry department, most of what I've heard isn't positive.
