If you have a 3Dec 18 2008Other
If you have a 3.5 and 1800+ you're set, but realistically you have a good shot as long as you keep up solid grades and get above a 1700 or 24 act.
Apply early in the year, especially if you want to go to a residential college as they're first come first serve, with no separate admissions requirements.
ACT: 32 Male
Maintain a decent GPA in high school (3Sep 08 2008Psychology
Maintain a decent GPA in high school (3.2+). If you are a transfer make sure you have already taken a math, science, and english course... this will increase your chances of getting in.

I got good grades in high school and did good on my ACT.
ACT: 29 Female
If you have a high gpa (3May 07 2008Computer Science
If you have a high gpa (3.8ish) and a low ACT score (21) then you will get in. I know people who have gotten in with a 3.3, but then again I also know people who didn't with a 3.2, so it depends. For me I had a 3.8 and a 29 ACT score. This got me in, but I just missed the honors college. If you have a 3.8 and a 31 ACT or a 4.0 and a 30 ACT you will probably get into the honors college. The average is a 3.5ish and a 24 ACT or something like that.
ACT: 29 Female
As a music student, I think that it isMar 19 2008Music Education
As a music student, I think that it is HIGHLY important that you be prepared to work your butt off if you get into this school. I, for one, had a huge shock going into the school of music, and I've seen many people switch majors because they realize that it's not for them. Just make sure that you go in with the correct mindset.
ACT: 32 Male
