Getting in is extremely challengingSep 01 2014Business - Management and Administration
Getting in is extremely challenging. The application process is long and has some medical "checkups" (you could call them) along the way. (not to mention security clearances which entail long background checks).

I would take AP Chem, AP Calc, and APMar 22 2013Business - Management and Administration
I would take AP Chem, AP Calc, and AP English to avoid those freshmen classes. The first year classes are a little sketchy because you could end up with a teacher who is about as knowledgeable as a TA.

I would do well in sports or at least be athletic. Doing leadership programs also helps a lot.
