PREFORMANCE on ACT or SAT and CLASS RANK
Performance on standardized tests and class rank is only a portion of the admission decision. Other factors include your applicant statements, rigor of high school curriculum, letters of recommendations and extra-curricular activities.
The application form includes two applicant statements intended to help us learn more about you beyond your test results and high school record. The first asks about your life experiences and the impact you will have at UWM. The second asks for a more general personal statement, or the opportunity to explain circumstances that might have affected your academic performance in high school. It is important that you respond to both. While letters of recommendation are not required, if you choose to submit one or two for consideration, please be sure that the letter addresses your academic ability and potential for success at UWM.
