Other than shooting for a good GPA and SATApr 26 2015Engineering Department
Other than shooting for a good GPA and SAT score, you will need to write a personal statement or about a specific topic as requested by admissions. You will also need two LOR's. I would shoot for a high school GPA of 3.3+ and an SAT of 1500-1600+. However, I have also seen kids get accepted that were not even close to these scores by any stretch, so it all depends.

I appliedJul 10 2013Engineering Department
I applied. This school was in my hometown and everyone from my Highschool that applies gets in because of our prestige and connection with MMA. So it wasn't hard in 2008. Now is completely different. I probably wouldn't have gotten in if I treated it like I did in 2008. I didn't really want to go to college but I changed my mind senior year of HS. NOW you need very good SAT and/or ACT scores, 2 letters of rec, Essay, copy of Birthcert and Passport, and a good interview. GOOD LUCK
SAT: 1170 Male
