Apply to get in. Had a 3.7 high school average and received presidential scholarship. Not hard to be accepted into, the school is desperate and gives a lot of money.

I applied for Hofstra university super last minute, and that was only because my parents made me go here. I had a ton of other colleges that were more convenient, more welcoming, and higher on my list that I was accepted into.

I did a lot in high school, so I reccommend doing what I did and emphasizing you as an individual over your SAT/ACT scores. I think the system at any school still relies on SAT scoring to get a representation of a student, so if they're good enough, definitely send them in. But Hofstra is now test optional (something not available when I applied), so if they are maybe not up to the averages, don't send them. If you do that, reach out to your admission counselor. They'll be able to put a face to an application. Instead of being another name in the crowd, by getting to know them, you can get your questions answered, and they'll see how hard you're trying and probably give you extra points (they like to see initiative). Overall: emphasize yourself. Be creative in that essay. Reach out to your counselor here.

Definitely work hard on your essay! Hofstra is a test optional school so if your test scores aren't great you don't have to submit them. That being said, your essay and transcript will be all that admissions counselors are looking at. Make sure you are taking challenging classes in high school and achieving good grades.
