What are the freshman admission standards?

October 15th, 2009 by Jaime

High school curriculum and grades are the most important admission factors. Most admitted students present a gpa that ranges from 2.5 to 3.5 (on a 4.0 scale) in a traditional college prep curriculum of math (3 years), science (3 years), social studies (3 years), English (4 years), and a foreign language (2 years). While there is no minimum cut-off, the test scores of most admitted students range from 900 to 1100 on the SAT (Critical Reading + Math) and 19 to 24 on the ACT (Composite score). Recommendation, essay, personal qualities, and activities are also important.

“I got involved with Spring Fling Committee and Alternative Spring Break. So I’m constantly doing something, I’m constantly running from one place to another. That’s definitely helped fill my time, and I like that because it gives me time to be like, OK, this is when this is and then I have to sit down and take some time away from that and study.”
