I got in with a 3.78 GPA and an 1890 SAT score.
I don't think they essays really mattered (I did all three of mine in under two hours).
I think they do care about diversity, though. I really pushed that in all of my applications and got in almost everywhere.
I didnt take any SAT prep course and I only got an 1150 and I still got in. Just make sure you take a ton of AP classes. you dont even have to pass the AP tests, just take the classes. but it definitely helps coming here with AP credit and those classes out of the way. Especially AP english.

Its hard to get in. If you didn't start off good as a HS freshman, forget it. Take every SAT study program you can.

I applied Early Action and was accepted. I also applied to the Honors College, but was wait-listed and eventually denied. I still feel challenged, and even honors students only take about 1 honors course per semester. I would recommend taking AP/IB classes (if your school offers them) or dual enroll, as admissions evaluates prospective students by rigor as well as GPA, standardized test scores, extracurricular activities, and essays (for Early admission, only SAT/ACT and GPA/rigor are considered).
