Things have changed since I've been there. It was a bit easier to get into what you wanted then.

They really care about your Essay. Scores/Transcript are important, but essay and resume are equally important. Average SAT is 1300+ (out of 1600). Take the application seriously.


They've made things more competitive. Apply before Dec.1 to be considered for Scholarships. Don't make the mistake of applying after Dec.1. After Dec. 1 only Top 10% get automatically accepted-everyone else is individually reviewed. Engineering, Business, and Architecture School admissions are more competitive (they require more from you).

High School Students:

Preferred: 3.5+/4.0
Ok: 3.0+/4.0
Considered: 2.5-2.99/4.0
Far fetch: lower than a 2.5

Preferred: 1200+ (M+V)/ 26+
Ok: 1000-1200 (M+V)/ 22-26
Far Fetch: lower than 1000 (M+V)/ lower than 21
Subject Tests considered, writing not shown to be important yet.

No Essay, but if you fall into the "far fetch" pool-send one anyways.

Crazy amounts of leadership/awards: Exceeded Expectations
Strong Participation: Preferred
Little Activity: Ok, if automatic qualifications are met
No activity: Far fetch (if automatic qualifications are NOT met)

Preferred: Top 10%
Ok: Top 20%
Considered: Top 50%
Far Fetch: Less than that

**Make sure to check the online automatic admissions qualifications. A lot of this is dependent on that.

Admissions Stats:
Acceptance Rate: 56%, getting lower every year (two years ago-64%)
Top 10%: ⅓ of entering class

ACT: 26 SAT: 1800 Male

When I applied to UH, they didn't really require an application essay, and my test scores were higher than the average. The only advice I can offer is that you apply early, and don't underestimate the people who are looking at your application (I know people who got rejected from this school because of that).

Just work hard in highschool it is hard to get into business school but keep you GPA up and you will be good. I would say keep it above 3.3 out of 4

It's fairly easy to get in, but APPLY FOR SCHOLARSHIPS. Apply for the Terry and Tier One scholarships...full rides!

Don't go to UH. Always go to Community College first for your core curriculum. IT is cheaper and the same at every university. Check transfer credit arrangements.= Best advice you will ever receive that no one told me!
