Super easy to get in. Don't need good grades, just good test scores, because you are just a number here. No one gives half a crap about who you are. Expect zero financial aid unless you are a minority.

There are people here with sub-1000 SAT scores (including the writing section). Don't bother applying if you want a decent education.

You can be brain dead and get in. It ain't that hard, people.

I had pretty solid ACT and SAT scores (30, 1400), but an average GPA in high school (3.5 weighted). I had some decent extracurricular involvement in my high school speech team and newspaper. I applied to Northwestern and UNC-Chapel Hill and was rejected.

Getting into IU is not hard. Get a 3.3 in high school and a 1600 SAT and you're golden. I went here because of the automatic scholarships - unfortunately discontinued - and the cheap in-state tuition.

In terms of how I got into IU, my story is pretty unusual. I didn't study all throughout high school, and didn't even consider college. Then I decided to apply everywhere in Indiana and got in. So, in my case, no special tricks were performed to secure enrollment at IU. It's not exactly difficult to get in, so this should be no surprise. As a reference, I got in with a high school GPA of 3.5 and a 24 ACT. So not terrific, by any means. Furthermore, my IU GPA is about 3.1, so someone with average-to-low-average standardized test scores can thrive here if they put in the effort.
ACT: 24 Male
