Honestly, it's not too hard to get into. But that does not disqualify WMU as a good school.

I didn't have the best ACT scores but IDec 02 2008Finance
I didn't have the best ACT scores but I had a great high school GPA. But every single application that comes into the University is different for a reason and the admission decisions follow this idea. Of course every University wants straight A, several volunteering hours and an ACT score of 32 or whatever the max is. That's not reality and the University is in this community to educate even those students with less than average grades.

Barely anythingJul 22 2008Biology
Barely anything. Very easy to get in. Apply elsewhere. Horrible faculty. Barely anyone will care about you.
