I had a 1950 on SAT and a 3Jul 09 2008Psychology
I had a 1950 on SAT and a 3.75 GPA. I did apply early because I heard that there had been a surge of applicants wanting to go to UConn, so I wanted to increase my odds.
There is always something to do at this schoolMay 15 2008Unknown
There is always something to do at this school. Its a big school. It is also a friendly enviroment.
ACT: 28 Male
Well, I'm from out of state, and I didn'tDec 26 2007Social Work
Well, I'm from out of state, and I didn't hear of this statistic untill my first week at UConn and that is that 1 in 10 out-of-staters get accepted, and out of that 1 in 10, about 30% actually go to UConn. UConn is 80% in-state students, so if you are from out of state and don't know anyone there, good luck because everyone else still hangs out with their friends from high school.
SAT: 1240 Female
I was top 10 percent of my class, 1300 on SATs, 4Oct 10 2007Mechanical Engineering
I was top 10 percent of my class, 1300 on SATs, 4.0 GPA. I was also a minority (pacific islander/Asian). Don't forget to mention if you're a minority, this college is obsessed with political correctness.
SAT: 1300 Male
People in HOct 10 2007Business - Management and Administration
People in H.S should definitely focus on their SAT and GPA, as with most colleges they are applying to.
Nowadays UCONN is relatively hard to get into and getting more competitive. At least a 3.4 gpa and 1800 SAT to almost guarantee admission.
