What the topic says.

They've sent me a LOT of mail, indicating that they seem to want me as a student (but then again, so has Princeton, and no way in hell I could get into Princeton for undergrad as a freshman), and given their requirements (2.0 GPA, ~970 SAT (old), Math 111 & English 111 equivalent, where I have 2.75, ~1380 (old), AP Calc AB, and IB Eng. II SL), I could probably get in, and Charleston is a beautiful city.

However, they seem to only offer art as a minor, and they don't seem to offer physics at all (two very disparate majors, I know, but those are what I'm trying to decide between). It seems to be more of a music/nursing college than anything else.

Any information on this college?

Dreadful, prison looking, suitcase, bible beater school. Atleast that was my impression when we visited to play them in football.

Serious? Wow, I guess I know why they seem so desperate to have students

College of Charleston on the other hand is one of the finest in the South.

Problem is, C of C has about a 3.3-3.7 average GPA attending, and I have something along the lines of a 2.8. Sure, their average out-of-state SAT is something like 1200 (old scale), and I have a 1390 (old scale, 2010 new scale), and I'm under a pretty hefty IB/AP course load, but I don't think they'll want me.

I'll still apply, but I think that's a reach-school for me.
