The admissions process is the most simple I've ever experienced. The application is free. The Honors Application requires short-essay responses and in-person/ phone interview. The Directors of the programs I am involved with actively seek out and recruit new members for their programs, making it easier to make connections and work your way up the ladder.

For those hoping to enter the medical field, IJul 17 2012Biology
For those hoping to enter the medical field, I recommend joining organizations such as ACS (American Chemical Society) and AED (Alpha Epsilon Delta).
To get involved in all campus activities, I would recommend joining the various ministries of the school through the Ministry Leadership Council and organizations like REC team or helping out with SOAR orientations.
