I didn't do much to get in. I had a 3.6 GPA by the time I graduated high school. I took the SAT once and got a 1750 and called it good. It's not hard to get in.

If you are trying to get into the healthAug 21 2015Biology
If you are trying to get into the health field please avoid this university. It is easy get into this university, but difficult to get out. You need a minimum of a 2.0 GPA, and at least one letter of recommendation from a teacher or counselor from your high school. Lastly, get at least half of the SAT questions right, but try to aim a bit higher than half of the questions.
