Get good graces (I believe the average gpa is 3May 18 2014Engineering Department
Get good graces (I believe the average gpa is 3.7) and decent sat and/or act scores (1600-1800+). If you want to earn a merit scholarship, aim much higher than these- and take advantage of AP/IB/ duel enrollment classes! Take manageable course load though so that you can get involved in extracurriculars, although the gpa and sat/acts are the primary admissions factors from what I've heard.
