Good solid background in the math and sciencesJun 23 2007Biology
Good solid background in the math and sciences. A lot of people will say that they don't care about essays, but they do. A good SAT score is needed, but not an exceptional one (unless you are going for a scholarship, that's completely different.)
I dont really remembr how i got into this schoolApr 15 2007Computer Science
I dont really remembr how i got into this school. I don't think you have to write essays. I heard that if you have a 1000 on the SAT (verbal + math) you can get in here. the freshmen retension rate is only 60%. I would not recommend this school to anyone. ONLY come here if you have a girlfriend otherwise YOU WILL remain single your entire college life.
SAT: 1950 Male
Have a good GPA, do well at the SAT / ACTFeb 08 2007Mechanical Engineering
Have a good GPA, do well at the SAT / ACT. Write a decent essay that probably will not be read.

I recommend students to know what they are getting into before they decide for this school. If you don't feel welcome, don't hesitate to transfer. I don't recommend this school. Good luck with getting any reasonable financial assistance other than loans and minor scholarships.
SAT: 1300 Male

I had a 3Sep 27 2006Civil Engineering
I had a 3.82/4.0 GPA, was a 4-year varsity athlete, and participated in multiple high school activities. And I wrote a killer essay with the help of my AP English teacher.
Good SAT scores, grades, and extracurricular activities will getAug 28 2006Civil Engineering
Good SAT scores, grades, and extracurricular activities will get you in, but being a minority is an instant ticket to admission. All you have to do is write a legible essay. Don't worry about your writing quality... if you can form complete sentences, you'll beat half the people here.
SAT: 1410 Female
