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.
