Did well on ACT, went on full-tuition scholarship. Do the same if you want to go.

| May 17 2010 | U of L is very easy to get in to. I'm not sure if this school denies anyone who had below a C average in high school or gets below an average ACT score. For out-of-staters like myself, it's all about getting that scholarship; 3.35 high school GPA and a 26 ACT (or whatever the SAT equivalent is). Don't let this lack of competition deter you; the school follows an admit first, weed out second approach.
My ACT scores got me the Speed National Scholarship which is offered to out-of-state students with ACT scores higher than 26. It is pretty hefty with an award of around $12,000 per year with low standards for keeping the award, honestly. You only have to "be in good standing". Definitely take advantage of this if you are interested in engineering.

Getting into the University of Louisville was very easy, at least for me. I would suggest that you have at least a 20 ACT score, a 2.5 high school GPA, or even a GED, and you can easily get in. Although, I would suggest that you maintain a 3.0 GPA or above, have at least a 26 ACT to be considered for decent scholarship money. If you are African-American, there is a scholarship program called Woodford R. Porter that offers great scholarship money to African-American students as well. Look for departmental scholarships and programs (i.e. Harlan Scholars, McConnell Scholars-Political Science Majors, some departmental scholarships for Business, Engineering, Education and Nursing).

Also, try to get above an 18 on all your ACT sub-tests (preferably a 25 for entry into basic science and math courses), so that you won't have to take remedial classes. For example, if you took Calculus in high school, it would be a waste of money, time and energy to take College Algebra, Trig, and Calculus all over again in college. Needless to say, the books for these classes are extremely expensive, and if you didn't get pre-Algebra in high school, chances are that you won't get it in college either. So prepare yourself as much as you can for college, and you will do just fine!
