SAT should be above 1700.
GPA should be >3.0

Most kids I've met were Student Body Presidents or Presidents of some club, took at least one AP class, and were mediocre students.**
Best of luck!
It was pretty easy for me to get into FU. I was a transfer student, who had a little over 40 credits at the time. My GPA was only a 2.9. I did have 2 great letters of recommendation from my prior professors. Do community service and well in high school. They care less about SAT's but they value kids who are active in their schools. Its getting really tough to get in but they do give good scholarships.
I ate the admissions lady out under her desk, she offered me a full ride I couldn't refuse.
