What Students Are Saying

3.51 Average Rating
Historically, Wentworth has not been a very selective school, but do not think you can slack off in high school and still make it! It has been said, Wentworth is easy to get into but hard to stay at. This is a pretty accurate statement regarding the hard to stay at part, I can assure you. Wentworth is a very demanding, hands-on institution. The professors expect a lot from students right out of the gate (especially design students). If you choose to go to Wentworth, it should be because you are serious about what you want to do in the future. If you are a prospective student, it would be wise to aim for at least a 1600 on your SAT, and if you choose to take the ACT, aim for at least a 24 overall. These scores are no guarantee for acceptance, but they are scores that have worked for previous prospective students. If you are not involved in a club or sports team in high school...GET INVOLVED! College admissions love seeing students who are involved with community service, sports and other activities; getting involved certainly will improve your chances of getting into Wentworth.

Make sure you try to stand out. I was waitlisted the first go around but I went and interviewed with my addmisions concelor and got it. Sometimes them knowing you personally and seeing you helps them know that you want to be there. It also doesnt hurt if you are female. The school is mostly male and they are trying to have more girls. Have great grades especially in the math and sciences and have a good amount of extra cirricualrs. They like people who are helping the community or at least doing something with thier time besides watching tv and going to school. Also get a really good score on the math SAT. They like my high math score.

Make sure you really want to go into one of the technology majors. You can change majors within the school if you change your mind about which one you want but transferring schools can be a pain so if you have no idea what you want to do I would recommend a school with a larger variety of majors. What is great about this school is that it is part of the Colleges of the Fenway. If you cannot find an elective that you like at Wentworth but there is one at one of the other five
Fenway schools that fits the requirements, you can cross register.

Stay on top of your classes and school work. It is important to stay on track with all your classes. Classes aren't always offered so failing a class can be a huge set back toward graduation. Some classes go faster than others but it is always important to attend class and know what's going on.
Stanislav from South Easton, MA
If your looking at this school make sure you are financially secure enough to handle the burden that comes with attending this school. I'm looking at around 11 grand per year with just the grants provided and the scholarship that the school gave me.

I like to think of Wentworth as a school that gives almost everyone a chance. Although they do give everyone a chance, you need to want it and show it to stay there. Its easy to get in, hard to stay at. Wentworth is a faster paced, career-oriented school. It has awesome programs. The staff is outstanding. Being a transfer student, I was nervous trying a new school after hating my first semester. The admissions staff is great. They really work with you on a personal level to help you with your problems. Wentworth also has the laptop program, which is really helpful. All the programs needed are on the laptop. I wouldn't go anywhere else. Wentworth is truly an amazing school.
Danielle from Atkinson, NH
Wentworth is a great school. However, I would only recommend attending if you are absolutely sure of which major you want to pursue.
Steph from Halifax, MA
If you like hands on work and don't mind small classes, Wentworth is the way to go. Also don't trow away old high school physics or math notes as they will come in handy. Study hard, show interest and put lots of effort into your work.
Pascal from Revere, MA
Be involved. Wentworth provides a close-knit, inclusive environment for students of all majors to get involved with an on campus activity. Whether it be competing on a Division III athletic team, an intramural athletic team, or just a club, Wentworth has something for everyone. Plus, the extra social interaction will build up your academic resources (classmates).
Connor from Haverhill, MA
If you go to this institution be prepared to work hard and also have fun.
