|Students who got into FAU say:|
Essay (2) |
| | Getting into the university was the easy part. What's hard was keeping up with what requirements you had to complete in order to apply for classes because the undergraduate folks don't really tell you when the deadlines are, YOU have to keep asking and do everything ASAP (again, that's how it is at most colleges). These people will help, but they will NOT baby you.
Apply early! This is not an ivy league school, but it is still important to apply as soon as you can. The school's admissions office offers scholarships based on gpa and test scores that you can get just by applying. Between Bright Futures, and that scholarship I got from FAU, I pay less than $500 a semester to go here, so it's worth it. Also they super score your tests, so out of the 3 ACT's I took, they take the top reading, math, writing score and combined them to give me the best score.

I was a transfer student to FAU because my high school profile wasn't what FAU was accepting. I went to a state college and received an A.A. degree. I joined an honors society at my college and was awarded a full scholarship to FAU, my school of choice.

FAU is not highly ranked but there is a high demand to get in. All Florida universities except UM and UF are absolute garbage but admission is generally quite competitive due to the state's huge population. I did fine on my SAT so getting in wasnt an issue for me. However, I knew kids who got around the 1500 mark (low but not abysmal) who were turned away. My estimate: SAT 1750+ = auto admit regardless of GPA. 1650-1750 should be fine with a GPA over 2.7. 1550-1650 SAT, 3.0 GPA would cut it. Less than 1500 and your community college material as far as your standardized tests go so I hope your GPA is well over 3.
