If you have an 85 average and an 1150Feb 17 2005Math
If you have an 85 average and an 1150 you are good to go. If you have a 95 and a 1400 apply to the honors College. You get to come here for free and it is a much better experience.
SAT: 1440 Male
It's not that hard to get inJan 02 2005PreMed and Medical
It's not that hard to get in.. I had a 89 average and SAT in the 1100s.
SAT: 1100 Male
Since my plan is to go into the medicalDec 12 2004Biology
Since my plan is to go into the medical field, I've been apart of many different science/medical programs throught HS. By getting involved in activities that reflect what your are interested about, schools will see that you are serious about persuing something in that direction. And as always, grades are a big thing. All long as you show that you've tried hard to stay in average range and still have time for your extracirricular activities, the university will take that into account and will consider you.
ACT: 21 SAT: 1160 Female
I submitted a simple application and was acceptedNov 26 2004Philosophy
I submitted a simple application and was accepted. If you're out of state and have good grades and over a 1250 SAT, you'll get into the honors college. Why? Because most out of state people have the same reaction as I did (this coming from the former director of the honors college).
ACT: 29 SAT: 1340 Male
Applied.Oct 31 2004History/Histories (art history/etc.)
Applied. This is such an easy school to get into w/ the right standardized test scores that it's a joke. Essays don't really mean anything, given the fact that this school asks for conformity and stifles your creativity to a slow death.
SAT: 1220 Female
