It's not too hardFeb 14 2013Business - Management and Administration
It's not too hard. You can't be completely stupid, though. Have some extracurriculars under you belt in addition to a solid GPA/average SAT score and your fine. If your a minority, however, you can slack off a little bit more. ASU is only 3% black and they'll take in almost any minority.

I did very well in high school, but INov 09 2010Undecided
I did very well in high school, but I probably only needed to commit to half the effort I put into my high school grades to get into ASU. However, I've heard that it has become more difficult to get in because of the popularization of our football team.
SAT: 1710 Female
I transferred to ASU from my local community college,Oct 25 2010History/Histories (art history/etc.)
I transferred to ASU from my local community college, and was accepted after three weeks of sending in application and transcripts. Applying as a freshmen is hard to get into the college because of numerous applicants. Since all the championships won over the past five years, there is an overflow of applications. Last fall, ASU received over 12,000 applications, and only 2300 open spots for freshmen. Some of my friends had to wait a semester before they could get in.
I personally love the University, the professors are willing to help you, and I have made lasting friendships with students with faculty, professors and students. There are a few professors who are a little nut case, but over all, 99% of professors have made an impact in my educational studies. I want to teach at ASU one day. I love the beautiful campus, mountain views, and all four seasons. I cannot say enough. You can take a lot of classes in traditional mountain music, mountain dance, bluegrass, country, Appalachian Studies and more. I attended two colleges before I found the college I am suppose to be. The majority of the students wish they could return after graduation. I love it here.

I had noOct 04 2009Computer Science
I had no extracurricular activities in high school, took no AP courses, and got a moderate score on the old SAT (1200), but I had some college credit from dual enrollment and a 3.5ish GPA. I got in first try. That was four years ago. Word is that Appalachian is now one of the hottest choices out there and is quickly becoming one of the tougher NC schools to get in to, so don't take my story as gospel.

It wasn't hard to get in, I don't believeMar 23 2009Anthropology
It wasn't hard to get in, I don't believe. Apparently since the whole football nonsense things have tightened up a bit. I had a 3.7 GPA and I think over 900 SAT-I know my math was disproportionately low. My ACT was higher but I do not recall. I was accepted right away, and I have since transferred to New York. If you are set on this university-apply more than once if you are rejected. Do volunteer work. Speak with current students and helpful faculty. Make yourself known instead of being a number.
