Study hard and get good gradesMay 05 2011Business - Management and Administration
Study hard and get good grades. ACT this year were 28-32 with math and science with Ivies.It will be harded to get in next year.
ACT: 34 Male
Not remotely hardApr 30 2011Chemistry
Not remotely hard. I see a huge mix of high school credentials. This ranges from people who got rejected literally everywhere (affirmative action students) and those who where valedictorians of their high school (but if they're from Ohio, they're still pretty dumb). Mostly people who didn't get in anywhere better. A lot of people seemed to have decent SATs, they seemed to care a lot less about GPAs. I know a 2.0 who got in with huge amounts of money. I think that you do stand a better chance if you apply to the humanities; a lot of them seemed to have weaker stats (even though there is a "one door" admissions policy).
SAT: 2130 Male
If you have a few things that you haveApr 19 2011Business - Management and Administration
If you have a few things that you have done with very meaningful work for a very long time, it is much more valuable than just crappy little activities that "look good". Youre going to need well above 3.5, and good SAT (or act i didnt take it). They will tell you they don't take AP credit: it is a LIE they take almost everything.
SAT: 1860 Male
While the school has been rapidly becoming more selectiveApr 07 2011Electrical Engineering
While the school has been rapidly becoming more selective in recent years, most people can get in without having to go to ridiculous extremes. Just get scores at or above the published ranges, get mostly A-s in AP classes or similar, become involved in one or two major activities outside of school, and your admission is almost guaranteed. If you are a stronger student, the University is generally quite generous with merit scholarships.
ACT: 34 SAT: 2300 Female
People here do not understand that schools and employersFeb 17 2011Accounting
People here do not understand that schools and employers value extracurriculars as life experience. You can get in with a list of 4000 prissy activities but you are equally likely if you have a lot of deep things to say about a few activities, even off-beat. Shoot for 3.8 and over 1700 sat. Good essay is worth more than grades (real deep essay not crap about how you are the kings daughter). They will tell you they dont take ap at all but its a straight lie they take almost all ap.
SAT: 1860 Male
