If you have decent grades (B average or above,Nov 08 2010Undecided
If you have decent grades (B average or above, 1800 or above SATs), you should be able to get in. It's getting harder and harder every year, but you don't have to be straight A's. This was not my first choice school.
SAT: 1840 Female
Acceptance to the Storrs campus gets harder every yearAug 21 2010PreMed and Medical
Acceptance to the Storrs campus gets harder every year. You will need a good GPA and SAT scores around 1200. Both are important. Taking honors and AP classes is a help as they want to see you can handle the workload at UConn. I attended a private high school that was tough, but UConn is much harder. Acitvities, clubs, sports and volunteering are also important. Within UConn some colleges are hard to get into, like the School of Business, Nursing, Pharmacy and Education. So you need to get accepted to Storrs and your school of choice. Some allow you apply after your sophomore year, but the competition is tough.
UConn (Storrs campus) continues to get harder to getJul 04 2010Business - Management and Administration
UConn (Storrs campus) continues to get harder to get in every year. The average SAT scores for my class was 1212, and probably higher this year. Getting into UConn is only the first step, you then have to be accepted to your college of choice. Some colleges are very hard to get into, like the School of Business, Pharmacy, Education, Engineering and Nursuring. You can reapply to them after your Sophomore year, but it is very competitve. So if you have major you absolutely want and do not get accepted as a freshman, you may want to consider attending a different school.

As for getting accepted to UConn, I took the hardest courses I could, but understood my capabiliies. I kept a consistantly high GPA - 3.9. I did a lot of activities, sports, clubs (president & vice-president), community service every year, yearbook editor, etc. UConn will look at the whole student, but you need to show strong efforts in all areas.
