How Good do you have to be to get into top Music Schools?

I'm just wondering just HOW good you have to be to get into one of the music schools like Julliard, Curtis Institute, Berklee college of music. It's more out of curiousity than anything else, I play the clarinet and have considered a professional career, but I'd probably want to go to a school where it's not my only option.

So any ideas?

    I got into Julliard. The people I visited with and played with who also were accepted are quite extremely great. If they had a musical flaw it was almost always a technical flaw that was overlooked because of potential, either in stylistic element, musical knowledge (theory and comprehension), creativity, speed and performance quality. I play piano so I can't speak about the clarinet. Hm, I know someone who got in for Oboe. But he was godly. PM for more info.
