    scking13800, you're very likely to get in. Your ACT is in the middle 50% range and the GPA is very respectable.

    skim18, you're in most likely. Your stats put you in the Top 25-50% range.

    If you look at ASU's application you will see that it does not even ask about EC's. Unless you are trying to get into the Honors College, all that matters is GPA, test scores, and competency in core academic classes.

    I got into to ASU yesterday so scking13800 I would say that you have a pretty good chance at getting in.

    How strict is asu on high school course requirements? I took geometry, algebra 2, and pre-calc, but I decided not to take math for my senior year. I took algebra 1 in eighth grade. So technically thats 3 years of high school math instead of 4. That would be okay right?

    Technically that's 4 years of high school math as long as the algebra 1 is on your high school transcript (even if it says it was taken at a middle school). That's the same path that I took for math classes.

    Thanks BusinessGuy for clearing that up.

    My D applied to ASU July 11th. She was accepted last week. You can check your application status on "My ASU".

    She is out of state - 3.3 GPA - 28 ACT.

    If you're a decent student, then the difficulty isn't getting into ASU itself. some 98% (93-98%, not too sure anymore) of applicants are accepted, and they only look at test scores and transcripts (which is why such a large percentage get accepted: they publish the cut-offs and those whose scores or transcripts aren't high enough typically don't apply). However, for any student who is looking to go to a decent college, the Barret Honors College is the thing you have to worry about. The Honors College has a parallel admission, so you do have to write an essay for it and they do look at class rank and scores more closely (they have some formula for SAT/ACT + how good your essays are + class rank/difficulty of classes to determine who gets in. But they don't publish it).

    Also, as far as classes go, ASU does consider applicants with course deficiencies provided other requirements are met. You're allowed to have one deficiency in two subject areas, so long as those areas aren't both math and lab sciences: Freshman Admission Requirements, Preferential Deadlines and Steps | University Student Initiatives . And some deficiencies can be made up with test scores, others with college classes.
