Am I a strong candidate?

LGS applicants can study ANY major at Adelphi, and often excel in their leadership, civic engagement, global awareness and academics. They have diverse interests, but all want to take part in shaping a more just, peaceful and sustainable world.

Less than 5% of Adelphi’s first-year students are named LGS students, and incoming students in our program often enter with an average 3.76 GPA* in high school.

However, our LGS Admissions Committee always evaluates academic performance, alongside a student’s overall qualities and strengths, LGS personal statement, university application essay, letters of recommendation, school achievements and other indicators of community and global involvement. 

  • Although not required, most LGS students complete some college-level coursework, Advanced Placement exams, Honors classes or an International Baccalaureate curriculum in high school.
  • Many also have been involved in Model UN, Red Cross Club, Global Kids, Key Club, Interact Club, gifted and talented education (GATE) programs, foreign language honor societies, cultural clubs, traveling or studying abroad or student government, among various other community and global activities. 

*Based on five-year average: 2014-2018.
