Fairly easy to get accepted by the school, but definitely challenging, especially for Engineering students. You should be prepared to spend a lot of time doing homework, projects, and studying. The campus is very nice, but some of the dorms are very far away from the campus, which makes navigation pretty difficult in Indiana weather.
