Butler will likely become more selective in the comingMay 03 2017Economics
Butler will likely become more selective in the coming years since the class of 2020's enrollment was so large that the school is struggling to provide sufficient housing. However, with a good ACT and mediocre GPA, you shouldn't have to worry about admission. I had a 33 ACT and 4.3 HS GPA and was offered the maximum academic scholarship.
ACT: 33 Male
Did not find acceptance difficult have goodAug 24 2015Fine Arts - Painting/Sculpture/Photography/etc
Did not find acceptance difficult; have good grades and sufficient volunteer time during high school and you'll be fine. (AP scores are a definite boost, too.)
ACT: 31 Female
Got slightly above averageFeb 11 2014Undecided
Got slightly above average grades in high school and average SAT and ACT scores. I guess I would just recommend getting the best grades you possibly can and doing some extracurricular activities.
I had goodFeb 05 2014Psychology
I had good grades in high school my gap was a 3.8 and I was a cheerleader and in Spanish club and did some volunteer work so I'm sure that helped and I had only taken the SAT, but they called me in to take the "butler ACT" and I must have did well on that because a week later I received my acceptance letter. Also apply early! Do a lot of volunteer work and show that you can excel in tougher courses and you're serious about your education.
I've heard that you have to have pretty goodAug 25 2011PreMed and Medical
I've heard that you have to have pretty good grades and a decent GPA to get into Butler. I personally had a 4.0 GPA but horrible SAT and ACT test scores and I still got in. Apply online and it's free.
