    Make sure your test scores are high, for they are quite generous to those with high test scores. A difference of one point on the ACT kept me from being able to afford this school, so make sure you do your best and keep at least a 3.5 GPA. You can get in with a lower one, but the financial aid will not be as good.

    Are you scared of a big school? Don't let that be the reason you don't attend The University of Iowa. You can let the school feel as big or as small as you want. Depending on your major, there might be classes where you can't get out of attending big lectures, but if you sit in the first few rows, you completely forget that there are people behind you! Scared you won't make friends? Sign up for Greek Recruitment! Even if you are 100% positive you won't join greek life, you will make lots of friends through the process of recruitment! It's inevitable.
