GET GOOD GRADES!!!! very important! do lots ofMar 25 2011PreMed and Medical
GET GOOD GRADES!!!! very important! do lots of extracurricular activities. I got my eagle, volunteered, played sports, did clubs, worked. You have to be a smart, dedicated, and have a plethora of experience in different activities. Don't get in trouble in high school, the church wont like that. Good luck.
ACT: 29 SAT: 1300 Male
I did my best in high school, and applied earlyApr 17 2009Other
I did my best in high school, and applied early. I maintained a high GPA and did decent on the SAT and ACT. I was involved in numerous extracurricular activities and leadership postitions as well. Also, apply for housing before you even apply to the school (no later than that June before).
ACT: 27 SAT: 1200 Female
If you come to BYU, do not follow onlyAug 27 2008Mechanical Engineering
If you come to BYU, do not follow only what is told. Do more stuff. Keep doing more. If your GPA is 3.8 but with lots of other extracurricular stuff then great. If it is 4.0 wiht none, then you are in a problem.

To get in, do your SAT etc. Getting in is not a big problem. The school is easy on admissions. Gets hard a little bit on coursework. So do your SAT. I'd say do SAT II's also. ACT is not the best way to go all the time. I have no real recommendation on getting in. Its not like you are trying to get into UPenn or something.
SAT: 1980 Female

Just fill out the online application by January 15thApr 05 2004Music - Performance
Just fill out the online application by January 15th if you want to apply for the Hinckley scholarship, February 15th otherwise. If you want to get into the school of music, I strongly recommend you get in contact with your instrument teacher and audition your senior year in high school. Names, phone numbers, and e-mail addresses for the teachers can be found at the BYU website (A-Z listing > Music, school of). Hope to see you here in Utah Valley!
ACT: 34 SAT: 1480 Female
I love theDec 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
