Tips mention: Interview (8), ACT/SAT (33), Grades (51), Sports/Extracurriculars (9), College Essay (24)
First and formostSep 06 2005Physics
First and formost. THE UNIVERSITY WANTS YOUR MONEY. The acceptance rate, which is 67% (as reported by college board), is too high for a university of this caliber. This makes it a very good second chance school. Even if you did bad in HS, you have a good chance of getting in ( as long as you can pay), and the university can really allow you to restart your academic carreer.

One more thing. If you're a girl, your're acceptance is almost assured. Every year there are a bunch of girls that eventually flunk out by winter quarter. It's a sign that their admission standards for women are lower.
SAT: 1310 Male

I had decent SATs but had a very strong portfolioAug 01 2005Art & Design Department
I had decent SATs but had a very strong portfolio. I took classes with a terrific art teacher who helped me develop my skills. She used to evaluate portfolios for other colleges. I really developed a strong portfolio. If you have the money, this is a great technique for any prospective student. In addition, you will develop terrific foundation skills.
ACT: 26 SAT: 1220 Female
