University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign offers more than 150 degree
programs in the eight undergraduate colleges that are open to
freshmen. Each college admits students on a competitive basis. When
you apply to the University, you must apply to one
of the colleges. You must also choose a curriculum or
Admission to all of the colleges at the University
is selective. The University is fortunate to receive applications from
outstanding high school seniors each year, and more than half
of the entering freshmen come from the top 10 per
cent of their high school classes. Due to the demand
for space in all programs, there is rarely an opportunity
to be considered for a second choice. "

I attended a community college for 2 years, got 4.0 GPA, cleared all general education courses and calculus 1-3 sequence and I recommend everyone to do the same thing, save yourself and your parents some money.
My ACT was slightly lower than our BUS Average. I applied with a 27, 28 Superscore.
Top 10% of my Class.
I think what sold me was that I went to state 7 times. (Speech, Band, DECA)
Have a brand when you apply, and as long as you can articulate that, you shouldn't have any problems. We want students who are involved and passionate about UIUC. We don't just want grade whores or kids who want a "good education".
We make students take ownership in UIUC, that's why everyone feels like they "belong" here.
if you are going for animal sciences be forewarned that if you intend to learn about small domestic animals like cats and dogs, forget it! this school is based on livestock and farm work...you are going to learn everything about animals most of us don't plan to work with. the professors travel a lot and don't really give the best advice on getting into vet school if that is your future plans. the school gives us "student advisers" but the thing is that nearly 100% of the professors when they were younger applied to vet school and didn't get in...so now they teach. should we really be getting application advice from people who never got in themselves?
