1.) They offered me a full academic scholarshipJan 01 2006Business - Management and Administration
1.) They offered me a full academic scholarship... an offer I thought I could not refuse at the time.

2.) My recommendations (it is a good school with a solid reputation academically) is to study hard now. If you are naturally smart, just remember, mostly everyone else there is too! One requirement when I applied was to be in the top 25% of your class... I graduated in the top 10% and believe me, it was no skate to the graduation ceremony. Most of the girls in my dorm were either the saluatorian or valedictorian of their own classes. I wasn't, but at MY highschool there were enough High Honors grads, it hardly made a difference. So, if you think brains is enough, it's not. You must know HOW to study to do well here. It took me a full year to learn that before I began to make the Dean's list! No one holds your hand at a big school like this, so you better learn to hold your own hand, QUICK!

It's been getting harder to get into UConn, butSep 19 2004Math
It's been getting harder to get into UConn, but by no means is it difficult. If you get decent grades (I mean B's and a few C's and take a couple of honors classes) and do some extracurriculars, you're definitely in. Their SAT is high 1100s so anywhere within that range is good. If you did really well in high school, you can get into Honors here, which has a lot of benefits. I had good SATs, ok grades, but I know people who had far less than that and got in.
