The standards for admission at Berea aren't too high given that their primary concern is helping financially struggling students. Just score like 23 on the ACT and you should be fine, as long as you meet the financial requirements.

There were many steps to complete an application. I would advise students to get as many things as you can done early and find out exactly what needs to be done. You can e-mail or call admissions counselors; they are very patient and always willing to help.

As long as you have satisfactory high school grades, ACT, and are poor you are almost guaranteed a spot.

go somewhere else unless you are interested in the sciences and have no where else to go and are a masochist with no social skills. then it might be a good deal for you. but the school has lost a lot of the character that made it charming back 30 years ago. it used to be more sustainable, now they talk about sustainability but it is a behemoth...top heavy with bureacrats....students teachers are treated as necessary irritants. $$$ machine for petty bureacrats.

Berea is a competitive school, plus it has an income requirement - check online to see if your family meets it. You have to have financial need. But if that is the case, then do all you can to stand out in high school. Good grades help, sure, but do some extracurricular activities too. Show leadership.

I got in as a non-traditional student after being away for 20 years, and had to start over as my courses from other schools didn't transfer. I larked through high school but got good grades in college when I went, so they took a chance and admitted me. I've got a 3.48 average now and am trying really hard to bring it up so I can get on the Dean's List. :) If you want to be challenged, this is the place to go.
