URI says:
"Admission is competitive.  In the review of applications, major emphasis is placed on your high school record, the quality of the courses you have taken, the grades you have earned, and performance on SAT or ACT.  You are advised to take the most academically challenging program in your secondary school.  The average academic profile of students offered admission for fall 2004 placed students in the top 29% of their high school graduating class with average SAT scores of 1140.  "

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 in. Acceptance does not seem to be an arduous process. The Common App makes it easy.

I was completely honest. My essay was about a failure that I went through, and they really appreciated how open I was about one of my biggest mistakes in lfe.

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.
