What we look for in an applicant:

UMR reviews each application holistically. We look at a student's GPA, ACT, STEM,  courses in progress and courses taken, as well as their application essay and extra curriculars. We are looking for students who have a strong science and math background and have challenged themselves in STEM courses. We like to see students who have take a math and a science course in their senior year. AP, Honors and IB courses are highly recommended.
