Dear 100 Hour Board,

Are there any sneaky ways to get accepted into BYU? Or if not are there any tips or tricks that might increase my chances?


A: Dear Wicket,

If you go on a mission they don't ask whether or not you graduated from seminary. Another tip that'll make you a shoe in is to make yourself a minority, then convert to the church about a year before you apply to the Y. One final trick that I've heard works well is to do incredibly well on the ACT, and have a high GPA. But of course these are just unsubstantiated rumors.

A: Dear Wicket-

If all else fails, take advantage of open enrollment and come during Spring and Summer Terms. If you do well, then your chances of becoming a regular student will quickly rise.

Whatever you do, don't go up to Rick's for a semester. You will get stuck up there. You will hate it.
