They will let anyone in. They don't care. All they want is money
You don't really have to much of anything toFeb 14 2013Other
You don't really have to much of anything to get into this school (except call and continuously visit the admissions counselors until one of them decides to grace you with the honor of actually counseling you and guiding you through the admissions process) that should have been my first clue this was going to be a bad experience. I must be a glutton for punishment.
I really didn't do as much as I wantedMar 09 2012Undecided
I really didn't do as much as I wanted but at WIU there are sooo many activities, there is something for everybody, and if you don't see anything that you think is for you, you can always come up with an activity.

I had a 21 on my ACT and a 2Dec 11 2011Other
I had a 21 on my ACT and a 2.3 GPA in high school. It's not hard to get in. If you dont meet either the GPA minimum which is a 2.5 or the ACT minimum which is a 21, you will still get in under a program called Academic Services. All that means is you are on "warning" and you have to meet with your advisor 8 times a semester and you can't rush a fraternity or sorority. It's not a big deal at all. A lot of people are on probation or warning and they get off of it pretty fast. To get off of probation/warning, you need to complete 24 credit hours and have a 2.5 GPA minimum.

i didn't do any thin much to get inNov 04 2011Social Work
i didn't do any thin much to get in. To be real with you I didn't think I would get in at all an transferring from a two year college and my grads from this school are not really good. I only have a 2.3 gpa and did not take the sat and still got in without any hard work so everyone else should be fine.
