Apply. They accept everyoneApr 19 2017Engineering Department
Apply. They accept everyone. Expect over half your classmates to drop out in the first semester. Happens every year. Make it through the pointlessly difficult core classes and your department will take care of you, just care about your outcome.

I sent my transcript and filled out an onlineSep 12 2012Mechanical Engineering
I sent my transcript and filled out an online application. Very easy to be accepted, but very difficult to stay in (I think 30% of the people who come as freshman actually survive to graduation..)If you want a challenge, go for it! Very worth it.
