IIT does the common app requires either an ACTMay 12 2015Biology
IIT does the common app requires either an ACT score or SAT score. I took the ACT three times and sent each one in, although they only saw my first two when I was accepted. They also require an extra paper that is separate from the common app. It talks about the IPRO (class?) you are required to take in your sophmore/junior year.
ACT: 25 Female

If you really want to succeed in Engineering this is your go-to school. The professors are amazing and they know what they do they are professionals in their matter of study. They may not know how to teach it but if you approach them enough you'll learn a lot.

It isn't hard to be accepted to the university,Jan 31 2013Civil Engineering
It isn't hard to be accepted to the university, but it is hard to get the money needed to attend. Luckily the university helps with scholarships and they make it very easy to find a job on campus or find outside scholarships and grants. Persistence is key.
