Unfortunately, this university has exceptionally LOW admission criteriaMar 02 2010Mechanical Engineering
Unfortunately, this university has exceptionally LOW admission criteria. I came in as a transfer student and the only necessary criteria for admission to this university is a GPA greater than 2.0 If I recall correctly, UH admits something like 90% of all the students that apply. That should really say something to you about how desperate they are to attract students and about how dissatisfying the education is.
SAT: 1340 Male
If you want to go, make sure you haveFeb 17 2010Anthropology
If you want to go, make sure you have a decent GPA and test scores, and have some kind of extracurricular activity listed. Don't be afraid to check on your application status, because if there is a problem, they won't contact you. But most importantly, when you do get accepted, PRINT EVERYTHING! When you sign up for classes, print. Pay your bill(s), print. This is the only proof they except, and you WILL have a problem eventually.
SAT: 1237 Female
I transferred from a community college with a gpaJan 20 2010Unknown
I transferred from a community college with a gpa of 3.3, and I was in without any problem. Mechanical department along with the other engineering departments will take you in a minute if you have a gpa of 2.5 in science and english classes. My suggestion to all the students with a gpa of 3.0 or above would be to aim for A&M.
Get above 1000 on the SAT, keep an unimpressiveNov 24 2009English
Get above 1000 on the SAT, keep an unimpressive GPA, and you're in. UH will take pretty much anybody. If you are a good student, smart, or looking to be academically challenged, try the Honors College or go to Rice or UT Austin.
I went greek and I also joined numerous groupsNov 10 2009Other
I went greek and I also joined numerous groups on campus. I recommend students not to be afraid to talk to the person sitting next to you on the shuttles, at a lunch table, or even in the library- it's a great way to meet new people.
