It was not very difficult to get inSep 10 2013Education
It was not very difficult to get in. Work on your GPA, SAT/ACT, and extracurriculars. They give scholarships based on ACT rather than GPA, so raise that as much as you can. There is a deadline that you need to have applied by in order to be considered for scholarship; keep an eye out for that.
