    BUSINESS STUDENTS 1. Getting into undergraduate programs here is easy. But UK is very picky about who gets into their business graduate school programs!!! Many scholarship requirements (like CARES, if you are a diversity scholarship) only require a 2.5 GPA. If you plan on going to grad school here, they do expect As/Bs on the major upper-division classes they look for (especially those in Accounting). You can retake 3x to replace a bad grade as if it didn't happen (wish I knew this earlier). 2. If you decide to double-major or minor, make sure it doesn't intrude on your main major you want to work in. 3. Use Leap Lab within Gatton College of Business. It is a free tutoring service specifically for business majors in ACC 201-301, ECO, and FIN courses. The Study is another, but they don't know as much. 4. Recruitment for internships is mainly done in the fall. By spring semester, most offers (but not all) are already taken. So, recommend going to fall business fairs. Also, Handshake tool is a great way to apply for internships. 5. Graham Office is for business students looking for internships/jobs, not Stuckert (which is for all other majors). 6. Need career advice? Ask your business professors, cause they know what they are talking about. Your advisers in Gatton are not necessarily knowledgeable about business industry/requirements, just what it takes to graduate.

    Some tips for prospective students that I have are; live within an LLP (living-learning program) during your first year on campus. This will help you gain a community and network of friends. Apply for a meal plan. Meal plans are so beneficial at UK if you are living on or off campus, they provide a student with cheaper dining options. The last tip I have for prospective students is to get involved! I cannot stress involvement enough when it comes to UK. This is a huge campus filled with tons of students, but it's easy to feel alone if you don't get out and get involved. There's plenty of organizations, clubs, fraternities, and sororities that you can make friends and give back to your community through.

    It is a large school, which tends to allow some students to get lost but if you are committed to finding a niche or group to help you succeed & encourage you, you will do well. It takes work and commitment but the University of Kentucky is definitely a place that you can succeed.
