Get the highest GPA and SAT/ACT possibleJun 09 2017Math
get the highest GPA and SAT/ACT possible...if you qualify for EOP, definitely apply if you had personal unique circumstances in your life (they will take a different look at the application)...be from California... and be from the Santa Clara county

otherwise, good luck of getting in

You don't have to do anything except apply andJun 29 2016Business - Management and Administration
You don't have to do anything except apply and pay them. I could have gone to a much better school, but was too young and dumb to know better. HS Students may NOT contact me for my viewpoints, because this review should be enough to put them off ever attending SJSU! Thank you.

Really easy to get in,since this is a state schoolJul 07 2014Accounting
Really easy to get in,since this is a state school. if you are living in the bay area and your GPA does not full under 2.5..then I am pretty sure you will get in. IF you are not living around the area, then make sure you get high GPA. like around 3.5 because I heard that the school is impacted. Especially the college of business.
