The University of Illinois Urbana Champaign

UIUC says:
The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign offers more than 150 degree programs in the eight undergraduate colleges that are open to freshmen. Each college admits students on a competitive basis. When you apply to the University, you must apply to one of the colleges. You must also choose a curriculum or major.

Admission to all of the colleges at the University is selective. The University is fortunate to receive applications from outstanding high school seniors each year, and more than half of the entering freshmen come from the top 10 per cent of their high school classes. Due to the demand for space in all programs, there is rarely an opportunity to be considered for a second choice.

I think what sold me was that I went to state 7 times. (Speech, Band, DECA)

Have a brand when you apply, and as long as you can articulate that, you shouldn't have any problems. We want students who are involved and passionate about UIUC. We don't just want grade whores or kids who want a "good education".

We make students take ownership in UIUC, that's why everyone feels like they "belong" here.

if you are going for animal sciences be forewarnedDec 05 2014Animal Studies
if you are going for animal sciences be forewarned that if you intend to learn about small domestic animals like cats and dogs, forget it! this school is based on livestock and farm are going to learn everything about animals most of us don't plan to work with. the professors travel a lot and don't really give the best advice on getting into vet school if that is your future plans. the school gives us "student advisers" but the thing is that nearly 100% of the professors when they were younger applied to vet school and didn't get now they teach. should we really be getting application advice from people who never got in themselves?
