I didn't do much at all to get admitted to UAA. Other than apply. They accept students for their money, not their scholastic success.

You literally don't have to do anything. I think if you are an out of state student they won't even check to see if you graduated high school or got a GED. I've been in classes with students who didn't know that there is a North and South Korea, there are NO standards.

To get into UAA, I maintained a high GPA in high school. I recommend getting involved in a cause you are passionate about and doing something other than the traditional high school courses. If possible, do independent coursework or travel.
