I love the music and arts offered everywhereDec 12 2003Political Science
I love the music and arts offered everywhere. I am also a huge fan of the international atmosphere. And finally, the political speakers and forums from supreme court justices to senators and just plain journalists and international experts, are inspiring.
ACT: 26 SAT: 1300 Female
Really good grades and very good ACT scoreOct 22 2003Business - Management and Administration
ACT: 34 SAT: 1330 Male
Competition to get in is a little fierce, butSep 24 2003Mechanical Engineering
Competition to get in is a little fierce, but it is worth the attempt. They will accept SAT or ACT but prefer ACT.
ACT: 27 Male
For prospective students, I recommened concentrating on extracurricular activitiesJul 22 2003Social Work
For prospective students, I recommened concentrating on extracurricular activities and service. BYU likes diversified people, with lots of different experiences. They like well-rounded, balanced, active people. Academics can't hurt too--this is a very intellectual environment. In my high school, I was in the top 5%; at BYU, I was average. Be prepared to work hard. And show that determination on your transcript. Don't take cheesy bird courses--challenge yourself in high school and at other universities. Don't worry about the essay too much--they only use it as a last resort.

Most of all, prepare yourself morally. Everyone at BYU lives by the "Honor Code," where we dress modestly, live cleanly, and swear to be honest and chaste. If you are not already living these standards, you're going to have a tough time. Start now. BYU won't even look at you unless you have an ecclesiastical endorsement--an affadavit signed by a religious leader attesting to your moral astuteness.
ACT: 29 Female

I participated in a lot of extracurricular and sportsJun 24 2003PreDent and Dentistry
I participated in a lot of extracurricular and sports activities in high school. I studied hard in high school and was trying to be well-rounded. The University has an honor code, and praciticing living an honest personal and academic life is good, its useless to go to BYU if you want to cheat your way through or do anything dishonest, it defeats the whole purpose. Develop integrity and hard work, do things that prove you are willing to live like a BYU Cougar.
ACT: 32 Male
