Honestly, UIC was easy to get intoDec 23 2014Biology
Honestly, UIC was easy to get into. Average ACT score got me here and better than average grades. The acceptance rate of this school is high, I wouldn't worry. If you have at least a C average you're already doing pretty well in terms of acceptance. Doing well on your essay helps as well.

So UIC takes ACT scoresJul 29 2014Criminal
So UIC takes ACT scores. Coming from a different state, I took the SAT instead. UIC was able to "convert" my score so I had an ACT score for math placement purposes.
I simply appliedJul 28 2014Chemical Engineering
I simply applied. There don't seem to be many standards. Emphasize how your qualifications or background might benefit the school's diversity and public relations - that's their main concern.
