I didn't have to do much to get intoAug 04 2014Computer Engineering
I didn't have to do much to get into my university, which seemed like a blessing at the time. They take average scores and GPAs and give decent financial aid, but that again is for the freshman. After, you'll want to start adding up those tuition cost, housing costs, and book costs and decide if you really want to deal with that in the long run for a very average education at best. If the answer is no, then you're better off reviewing some other schools.

Study hard for the SAT and ACT so that you will have great scores that qualify you for scholarships. Mizzou can get pretty costly.
You can get into the university easily enough ifFeb 21 2014PreMed and Medical
You can get into the university easily enough if you get all the basic class requirements and a 24 or higher on your ACT. Professional programs like Allied Health(ultrasound, radiography, resp. therapy, OT, PT, etc), Nursing, Journalism, Education, and Social Work have competitive admission so be prepared for all of that.

If you want to get into MU, have noNov 20 2013Chemistry
If you want to get into MU, have no fear, it's quite easy. All MU cares about is money, not academics. You could easily get in with a 22 ACT, if your willing to pay full tuition. My 29 ACT was only good enough to warrant 500. Seems like MU should pay more attention to academics and less towards their over-hyped football program where players are regarded as untouchable gods.
ACT: 29 Male
It's really not that hard to get in toMay 01 2013Journalism
It's really not that hard to get in to Mizzou in general. However, If you want to study journalism, I HIGHLY recommend trying to be a direct admit - be in the top 10% of your graduating class or get a 29 or better on your ACT. If your not directly in, you're going to have to work your butt off to get in, as only 20% are accepted and your GPA is going to need to be around a 3.7 at least.
