    It's never too late, but you need to recognize that there will be less opportunities for you as your academic resume stands. There is not much you can do about your GPA right now as a senior, so the area you can most affect is your SAT's and ACT's. Try each one, you may score better in one than the other. Then study for and take the test as much as you can to improve your score. You did not list any extra-curriculars, this is important and can make your application much stronger. Good Luck.

    ShayAshlee,

    If you're interested in Norwich, I would strongly encourage you to apply. What do you think you would like to major in? Where do you see yourself after you graduate from college?

    I would recommend taking the SAT or ACT again; the first time you never do as well as you'd like, just because of test-anxiety.

    You can complete the Norwich application online. Once we have your application, high school transcript, SAT/ACT scores, we will review your file. You may also send an essay and letters of recommendation.

    Please let me know if you have any questions- I am more than happy to help.
