How I prepared was acquiring the application and going through the requirements to see if I fulfilled them. The first thing was a GPA requirement, preparation for that including doing well in high school. I took AP classes and made sure I had honest communication with my teachers concerning my grades. Second requirement was community service experience. I was very involved in the children department of my church and frequently participated in feed the homeless and other community service projects. Another requirement were recommendations. I established good relationship with my teachers and had mentors who were willing to write me recommendation letters.
