Be a national merit finalist/semi finalistJun 19 2016Biology
Be a national merit finalist/semi finalist. This should insulate you for a reasonable price and acceptance.
Getting into the College of Science and Engineering (CSE)Nov 10 2015Aerospace Engineering
Getting into the College of Science and Engineering (CSE) at the U is very competitive. Everyone in your freshman class will be at the top of their class, too, and it can be intimidating if you're used to being one of the only smartest students in your high school. I would recommend taking the time and energy to take as many advanced classes as you can, all the way through your last semester in high school and do well in them. It will both prepare you for the rigorous program, and prove to CSE that you are worth admitting.

just get good grades, get a good score on your SAT, I didn't take my ACT and still got in. AP classes are always a good idea.

It is not very difficult to get accepted toJun 06 2014Unknown
It is not very difficult to get accepted to the University of Minnesota. As long as you have a strong GPA and ACT score you have a good chance of getting accepted. This is one of the few universities that doesn't require you to write a bunch of essays. Although the application process is easy, I would not recommend this university.
ACT: 31 Female
