    If you are looking to attend St. Mary's I recommend that you do really well in your SAT and ACT because your scores will place you in certain classes based on what you got and this could determine if your behind or ahead in your major.

    Make sure you have a great SAT score because this school uses these scores, specially if the student is planning to study in the STEM area, as a standard for placement. However, the student is able to test out of classes, such as math. Also, this school has core classes, which means that this school requires you to take certain classes with all the other classes you have to take for your plan of study. It is advised to look at the class manual and plan for which classes prior to registration. Finally, when planning to do laundry it is advised to do it Saturday in the morning, since everyone is sleeping in.

    Students should attend St. Mary's if they are interested in a smaller, more in depth university which offers classes with less than 50 students in each class. The professors know your name, and that makes it easier to have a connection with them rather than being total strangers the whole semester. I personally find this favorable since the high school I attended was about the same size, or a bit smaller, than St. Mary's. I am not exactly too religious, but attending the masses and getting involved religiously on campus is optional. Beware: most freshman attend St. Mary's their first semester as a biology major and chemistry minor. Only do this if you are the upmost positive you have intentions of sticking with it, the classes are difficult. Biology is a rigorous major. Do not waste your precious time and money if you are not 100% positive that you love the sciences enough to stick with it for 4+ years.
