To get into this university all I had toFeb 22 2014PreMed and Medical
To get into this university all I had to have was a pulse and the ability to write my name and fill the forms correctly. Getting into this school was an absolute joke and you can tell by it's 96% acceptance rate.

If you get into KU. Don't come here just for basketball because it won't justify the other months that you spend here in absolute boredom.

I'd recommend you to only come here IF IT IS THE ONLY OPTION. For me it was for financial reasons, but if you have the choice to go anywhere else you should definitely consider it and read more about it then jumping to Kansas.

Getting into KU was incredibly easyMar 16 2011Psychology
Getting into KU was incredibly easy. I applied and literally the next day they accepted me. I think the main requirement was a 21 on the ACT, which I easily achieved. I do worry about the graduation and retention rates. KU needs to work on that. Many of my friends are taking a "victory lap" or plan to transfer to an easier, more specialized university. That is a downfall of the university and something I hope they continue to work on.

I recommend to high school students that want to become undergrads at KU that you get a 21 on the ACT, make decent grades, and show a broad range of interests. Being a student and nothing else does not make a strong applicant. I, for one, participated in several student clubs and sports and easily got into KU.

For graduate students, it really depends on the field.
