In order to get in I transferred my existing credits for the University of Pittsburgh.

I took IB courses in high school, and participated in activities not just in school but outside of school. Volunteer activities, too!

If you really want to go here you first need to be really, really rich or incredibly, incredibly persistent. You need to be involved in something political. (I was involved in rally organization and awareness campaigns in high school. My room mate was a campaigner for Obama in 2008.) Maintain above a 3.0 gpa and make sure you're taking the hardest classes available at your school. It also helps to have other leadership activities under your belt.
SAT: 1250 Male

Apply, and you'll probably get in.

Getting in is pretty easy. Just have a high enough ACT or SAT score and American University will be glad to take your money from you.
ACT: 31 Male

I recommend a long on site visit, more than just the one day tour. Get a true feel for the school and area. International studies is its strength, as far as I know the law school is decent as well. If your feelings are outside of those areas, meet a few of the professors in your chosen field. The district is a great place to be.
SAT: 1195 Male
