Dear 100 Hour Board,

What kind of grades do I need to get in order to be admitted to the accounting program?

A: Dear Hopeful Realist,

As I'm sure you're well aware, BYU's accounting program is highly competitive. They never accept more than 260 students each year, and many don't get in who meet the minimum application requirements. Statistics aren't available for 2004, but in 2003 the average GPA of those accepted was a 3.75. The lowest GPA they accepted was a 3.45. Applications are due June 30 - good luck!
