Get decent grades, a decent ACT/SAT score and take a few AP classes. It is getting harder to get into now. Where the average ACT score to get in a few years ago was around a 24, it is now closer to a 26. The average student accepted also has a high school GPA of around 3.6. However, I would avoid going here and go somewhere else.

Getting in is easy staying there is hard because of the negative qualities of the university.
