1. Scores in 250s/260s
2. USCE (at least 3 months) preferably should include a sub internship
3. Research (any amount of it. Would be best if you could spend a year and be productive, i.e.get published but that is not always possible if you do not have a GC)
4. Strong LoRs
Just the basic stuff to have a shot at really good program. Having connections helps of course.
