Anyone can graduate high school will be accepted withMay 03 2014Economics
Anyone can graduate high school will be accepted with the rare few rejections. This is apparent when you begin to meet other students; they let everyone in. I could have used my common app essay, but I wrote some bullshit about a tree that I used as a metaphor for strength and they probably didn't read it because I had above the minimum GPA and SAT score. This is not a selective school. Yes, you will be accepted.

Every year UO becomes significantly more competitive. I recommend keeping your GPA at around 3.4 and above, then SAT scores around 1800. Put a lot of effort into your essay.

As an in-state student, my high school GPA wasFeb 28 2012Journalism
As an in-state student, my high school GPA was enough for me to gain entry to the University of Oregon. I suggest you develop a disciplined work ethic in high school so your transition to college will be easier. Classrooms of 200 or more students can be overwhelming, but you generally only have large classes your first two years. As long as you stay motivated, you have every opportunity to succeed.
