Finance major at FSU

I'd like to study finance at FSU. Does anyone know if this is a popular programme and is it competitive to get into?

    It is a popular major and it's a limited access program.
    A limited-access program utilizes selective admission to limit program enrollment. Limited access status is justified when student demand exceeds available resources (student/faculty ratios, instructional facilities, equipment, or specific accrediting requirements). Criteria for selective admission include indicators of ability, performance, creativity, or talent to complete required work within the program. Admission to such programs is governed by the Articulation Agreement and by the State Board of Education administrative rules.

    For a number of degree programs, access is limited at the upper-division level to those students meeting certain additional criteria. These additional criteria are applied equally to AA degree transfers from Florida public institutions and rising juniors at Florida State University.

    All programs within the College of Business are considered limited access programs, which means that they are very popular and can be quite difficult to get into.

    Here are the minimum requirements to be formally accepted into the Finance program:
    Admission Requirements to the Upper-Division Major
    Admission to the limited access business programs requires the following: 1) completion of at least 52 semester hours; 2) a cumulative grade point average on all college work attempted of at least 2.90; and 3) satisfactory completion of all required prerequisite coursework.

    Keep in mind that, until you are accepted into the program once you meet these requirements, you will be considered "Not Formally Admitted" to the program, and won't actually be considered to be a Finance major.
