    Mines doesn't offer as many scholarships as other schools, so really be on the lookout for that. Another thing with Mines admissions is that they are looking for academically strong students--they don't care much for the extracurricular and volunteer work. If you believe that will make up for a poor transcript, think again. Also, a 34+ on ACT and 3.5 or above will get a 20,000 scholarship (guaranteed) while a 30-33 and 3.5 or above GPA will get a 10,000 scholarship.

    I didn't realize how nice a small campus is until I came here. Commit to getting involved in 3 groups the beginning of the year. No more, no less. Don't overwork yourself.
