Do well on the ACT/SAT, and have perfect grades if you're a freshman. Freshman have under a 10% acceptance rate. Transfer students like myself have it much easier.

Deal with their stuck up and elitist attitude fromApr 19 2014Geography and Geosciences
Deal with their stuck up and elitist attitude from the very start (the day you regretfully send in your application). Save yourself, apply to South Dakota School of Mines instead (2nd degree is from there and I will probably to transferring back to finish my 3rd). Colorado School of Mines is a joke.
