Make sure you sound religious on your application. They won't let you in if you don't.

I paid a lot of moneyApr 04 2014Economics
I paid a lot of money. They offer an easy application and let in anyone with a ACT score higher than a 22 and a below average High School GPA. If you want to shine among a group of less than motivated students Business at Bethel is the way to go.
ACT: 30 Male
I got a 2Feb 24 2013Finance
I got a 2.5 GPA in high school and I took the ACT without preparing and got a 19. I got into Bethel University with no problems. I had to take one extra class. If you want to get in and you have horrible grades, lie about depression or ADHD they will not check this out (for sure not depression), and write a super good faith statement even lie on this to make yourself look insanely obsessed with God. 100% chance of getting in.
ACT: 19 Male
Excellent GPA, strong ACT and early applicationJan 28 2013Physics
Excellent GPA, strong ACT and early application. The campus visit and meeting with the department head was also instrumental.
ACT: 34 Male
You have to have a decent ACT score andApr 09 2012Psychology
You have to have a decent ACT score and you need two letters of recommendation and you have to write a paper about your relationship with Christ. It sounds more difficult than it actually is. I had an ACT score of 27 and from what I've heard that's pretty average but my roommate had a score of 20 and got in.
ACT: 27 Female
