If you really want to get into Miami youNov 28 2006Finance
If you really want to get into Miami you need to focus on a few areas. Make sure you're, at the minimum, in the top 50 percent of your class. Grade point should be no lower than a 3.2ish area. Make sure you're involved in activities and/or have a steady job. Your essay should be well written and thought out. Lastly, make sure to get a recomendation letter from a teacher (a Miami Alum would be the best)

Everyone applying to Miami has great grades and test scores, and it is becoming more and more difficult to get in. Extracurricular involvment, student initiative and drive, and anything that makes you stand out as a high school student will help.

I spent about 30 minutes on my application toApr 10 2006Economics
I spent about 30 minutes on my application to Miami. If you are out of state you are in luck, because the state of Ohio has been decreasing expenditures to state schools and at the same time putting caps on how much those schools can raise tuition to in-state students, so if they can charge you twice as much you'll likely get in. Otherwise, it seems like the rich, private school type are the most prevelent on campus so if you fit that mold you'll likely get into Miami as well. As for actual statistics for admission go see the princeton review.

If your heart is set on Miami University thereMar 08 2006Business - Management and Administration
If your heart is set on Miami University there are a few ways to get there.

First, you can apply for regular admission, but you want to be one of the first to submit you application as your application will be looked at several times. A strong college preparatory High School career is a must. With a strong GPA, I would say no lower than a 2.5. If you are not accepted do not fret.

Second, Miami University has two satellite campuses located in Middletown and Hamilton, Ohio. These campuses have open enrollment. After completing 32 credit hours with a cumulative GPA of 2.0 or better you can transfer to the Oxford campus.

Third, you can attend a local community college to prove your academic worth, but be sure to contact Miami University beforehand to make sure that your credits will transfer. A school that is on semesters works out best.
