Dear 100 Hour Board,

Aside from obeying the rules, what are some of the requirements to get into BYU and what are the things that are considered greatly when being accepted?

-Considering BYU.

A: Dear Considering,

Check out admissions requirements at
For incoming freshman, the average ACT composite is 27, and average high school GPA is 3.76. Of course, since those are averages, you can still get in if yours aren't quite that high.
For scholarship consideration, extra-curricular activites and service groups are great. We're a pretty well-rounded campus made up of well-rounded individuals.
Good luck!
-Considered ONLY BYU
