You can get straight C's in high school, andNov 26 2006Undecided
You can get straight C's in high school, and perform self fellatio while taking the ACT and still get in--its that easy. Trust me, take a look around at the people walking around campus to get an idea of how hard it is to get in.
ACT: 24 Male
Don't go here, believe me you will not needSep 06 2006Business - Management and Administration
Don't go here, believe me you will not need to try to get in, you would have a harder time trying to get accepted into a community college then NIU, invest your time, money, education and life elsewhere

Homer Simpson is the most distinguised alumnus of NIU. Nuff said as to the academic rigor.
ACT: 22 Female

I did well in high school and on the ACT. Work hard...it will take you far!
