UConn has gotten pretty selectiveApr 23 2017Business - Management and Administration
UConn has gotten pretty selective. You should be in the top quarter, if not top tenth of your graduating class. A good SAT/ACT score is a must. You should also look into extracurricular activities to set yourself apart from other students. A solid resume will include a lot of in school and out of school activities. Recommendations and your essay may sway admissions, however. Overall, it's worth applying to UConn. It is such an incredible school, and a great value too!

If you live in state its damn hard toSep 22 2016Political Science
If you live in state its damn hard to get into Storrs, especially if you live close to one of the branch campuses. Id say you have to be in the top 15-20% or so of your in state graduating class to get in. If you are out of state, its much much easier to get in, and I wouldn't worry. They are much more accepting to out of state students that have lower scores or grades than what they "expect".
SAT: 1400 Male
My SAT scores were ok, but not AMAZING likeDec 23 2014PreMed and Medical
My SAT scores were ok, but not AMAZING like most people I have met at UConn. I had a total of 1740 I think, but my GPA was very good. I was second in my class and had a 3.9 Gpa. I received a lot of awards for volunteering and helping my community. I took college classes (3 every semester) starting my junior year at a local University in Hartford. Just make sure that you have a very good GPA, get involved in extra curriculum activities, and have acceptable SAT scores.
SAT: 1840 Female
