If you cant get into DePaul I would advise you to consider your local community college. You need at least an 18 on you ACT and 950 on your SAT. It is not hard to get into this school. They mostly look at your high school grades. You probably will need at least a 2.7 GPA. But seriously, if you cant get into DePaul you probably should just try a community college for a year, boost your GPA and then transfer to DePaul. If you cant get into DePaul you suck at life. Except for the theater and music programs which are highly selective.

Just have a decent ACT/SAT score, and at least a C average in school. Higher grades get better financial aid, but it's not too difficult to get into DePaul. Ten years ago, it would have gotten you some "wow, you're smart" reactions, but now, it's just another private school, pretty much.
| Computer Science|| Nov 25 2009 | Getting into DePaul is, tragically, one of the easiest things I've ever done. I didn't do the best in high school (my school encouraged stifling creativity in students), and I know I could have gotten into a better school if I had better grades. As long as you have decent grades in regular classes and an extracurricular or two, you're in. Keep your grades up and be in activities.
