To get in, you can either:Dec 27 2012Aerospace Engineering
To get in, you can either:

A)...be super smart and gifted and ace the standardized tests (ACT, SAT) and/or be valedictorian of your high school and/or do something else to prove you are a super-genius (start a charity, start a business, be Asian, etc).

or, what I did

B) Do well enough in high school academically to be in the top 10-25% of your high school class, be in a bunch of high school programs to prove you are a diverse student, and write really good essays on your application. They really emphasize diversity here.

Case was more forgiving than most other colleges, inAug 31 2012Mechanical Engineering
Case was more forgiving than most other colleges, in terms of GPA. I had a 2.9999 GPA (ridiculous, right?), a 32 on ACT's, a 2190 on SAT's, really good recommendations, and a good essay.

I think the test scores did the trick.
ACT: 32 SAT: 2190 Male

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
Maintain as close as you can to straight A's,Oct 11 2009Accounting
Maintain as close as you can to straight A's, high test scores dont hurt. Be loosely associated with dozens of your schools clubs and put lots of effort into one or two to bulk up your common app. Writing a decent entry essay may on its own get you in. Still, do not be afraid to completely avoid this school at any cost. If you do get in, good luck, and dont forget to make your own fun.
