To qualify for this opportunity, applicants typically have earned a high school GPA of 3.5 or higher, and a combined verbal and quantitative sections score of 1200 or higher on the SAT. Once admitted, students must

  1. Maintain an overall GPA of 3.3 or higher, after freshman year.

  3. Earn a “B” average or better with no grade below a “C” in the prerequisite courses.
