I found that getting into CU wasn't too hardJun 08 2005Geography and Geosciences
I found that getting into CU wasn't too hard...I came from a public school in Pennsylvania, with a 1220 on my SAT's, and finishing roughly in the middle of my HS class, although my HS does not do official class rankings...furthermore, I had only 1 or 2 extracurricular activities in HS on my "resume"...basically, I cruised through high school, and padding my resume for college was something that I absolutely did not do, and I got into CU, Purdue, and Arizona State; was rejected from Wisconsin and North Carolina...I understand that CU has tightened up their standards a little more since I got in, but I still wouldn't worry too much about getting in as long as your keeping up with things in HS...
