So, is anyone here an alum of Wake Forest? At the moment, it's one of my top choices for college, so I just want input of the school. I'm from California and haven't had the chance to visit yet, but I'd like to hear first-hand experiences of the school.

If you're considering Wake it means you probably have good ass grades.

I'd look at another school like Carolina.

Wake has a good mock trial team.

UNC has harder admissions though, especially out of state. Public schools are obligated to admit more in-state students. UVA and UNC are especially difficult for out of state applicants.

Carolina's tougher to get into than Wake, I believe.

And what are you trying to go into? I went through the whole college selection thing not too long ago, so I could possibly help you out.

Doing your GE's at a community college will save you tons of time and money, especially if you aren't sure about your major.

Pre-Medicine. Community college is a very logical choice, but I think it's time for me to be on my own.

Wake has a very prestigious pre-med program, from what I've heard. The only con to Wake is the small student population. But hey, for a top-tier education? Totally worth it.

Oh yeah, Wake has a great medical school. How good are your grades, SAT/ACT, that kind of stuff?

Winston-Salem native here, whom attends Chapel Hill now.

I lived in Winston for most of my life, therefore am pretty knowledgeable about Wake. The actual town of Winston isn't really that great for college life, but Wake Forest is like a separate community within Winston. I have a lot of good friends there and my ex-girlfriend goes there. If you have any specific questions about Wake or UNC you can PM me.

Good luck!

Grades: 4.4 GPA junior year. All AP/Honors.

SAT: 2100-something, forgot the exact number. Equates to a 32 ACT.

Various leadership, community service, etc.

Only regret is not preparing for the SAT earlier. I very much had the potential of scoring a 2200+, but hey, what's done is done.
