what do you think of the IB curriculum? Do you recognize it's rigor? Will it help if the applicant took 4 HL courses and 2 Standard level courses and did well in them? Do you look at the overall grade or each individual grade? I did not do as well for 1 course, and my grade for that course has to been very good (I am still adjusting), but I hope to boost my marks this year! Thank you so much for answering my questions! :)

We certainly recognize the rigor of IB coursework. We recommend that students challenge themselves and certainly taking HL coursework is looked at positively, and we hope that while challenging yourself, that you also maintain strong grades. We focus primarily on coursework and grades from 10th through 12th grade.

what would you considered to be a high gpa? Do you accept dual enrollment classes ?

GPAs really depend on which college you are applying to, but you can find averages of each college on here

We evaluate college courses for potential credit here at Carnegie Mellon (see this page) but if the class you took already counted towards your high school credits or diploma, then you can’t also get credit for it from us.

Out of how many students, how many students were admitted into the school of design as transfers this year? Thanks.

We accepted 5 of the 36 transfer applicants for Fall 2015, though transfers are considered alongside freshman applicants in the fine arts. 

Anonymous asked:

For transfer students, do you still suggest that we should retake our standardized test scores if they weren't the best scores possible? I am applying for School of Design if that helps.

We do not require transfer students to retake standardized tests, but will review updated scores if the student wishes to retake the exam.
