    Coming from the standpoint of a transfer student, I would suggest making sure that your grades coming in look good and that you score well on your tests, though I know that this school does not have the most rigorous entrance requirements. Once attending classes, like any other college, make sure that you talk with your professors because they will be the ones who can help you achieve both inside and outside of the classroom. Also, since you are in Boulder, take the time to explore and have fun. There are many things to do like hiking at Table Mesa, going to concerts, exploring The Hill, and enjoying the yearly Shakespeare Festival.

    I think that showing a genuine interest in the school and communicating your dreams, passion, and goals are more important than any academic credentials you may or may not have. The school wants to accept students who are passionate and will work hard to achieve their dreams and will contribute meaningfully to the campus and community, rather than only the best academic students.

    The biggest con of attending this school is the cost. It comes with a steep price tag, but if you can afford it it is totally worth it. Just be sure that you are open and honest during the application process, and that you work diligently in high school.
