I would say that I would definitely work hardFeb 02 2015Psychology
I would say that I would definitely work hard in your math classes and try as hard as possible to remember because teachers expect that you know a lot from high school. If you go a semester without school, it's hard.
I used transfer credits to get inFeb 01 2015Other
I used transfer credits to get in. Acceptance does not seem to be an arduous process. The Common App makes it easy.

It's not that hard of a school to getSep 24 2014Business - Management and Administration
It's not that hard of a school to get into it was actually my safe school. Just don't completely bomb your SAT's and do decent in school. I have a friend who got accepted and invited into the honors program who's grades were completely average, don't stress.
SAT: 820 Female
General admission is pretty easy (3Apr 11 2014Pharmacy
General admission is pretty easy (3.0 and 1600 should do the trick), but pharmacy and engineering are a bit more selective. For engineering, a 3.6 and 1700 were around the reported average, as I recall, and for pharmacy, you should shoot for a 4.0 and 2000.
SAT: 1340 Male
