Not applying is the best ideaNov 15 2004Other
Not applying is the best idea. The school supposedly has competitive admission standards but you would never know it judging by the student body.
Pretty esayOct 06 2004Journalism
Pretty esay... either have a high GPA or high SATs.
This place isnt really hard to get into forSep 24 2004Business - Management and Administration
This place isnt really hard to get into for an instate student. You can get in with a 1190 SAT and a 2.7 GPA for minimums and as your GPA goes up your SAT score can go down. So you could get in with a 980 SAT with a 3.5 GPA or something. Out Of State Students i would imagine have it a little tougher but not much. Probably an SAT of 1100 and a GPA that cracks 3 will be fine. The school has started using a waitlist and is trying to make the quality of student better here, but if your intelligent enough you should have no problem getting in here.
I slept through high school, but had an iotaSep 02 2004Other
I slept through high school, but had an iota of intelligence.

I.E. I got A's and B's while doing nothing most of the time in high school but got a 1400 SAT score. But anything over 1000 SAT will suffice.

They're getting more selective, but not that much.
SAT: 700 Male
