I went to the National College Fair on Tuesday at the World Trade Center in Boston, and I spoke with the guy representing Embry-Riddle. He said that for non-Engineering programmes the acceptance is a 2.5GPA and around a 1000 on the SATs. For Engineering programmes, a 3.0GPA is necessary, as well as a 1200 on the SATs.
I take my SATs on Saturday, and luckily for me standardized testing is my strongest area, so I may have some luck afterall.

Never took the SAT. My university preferred the ACT but still had a formula for using the SAT though. They would take either test score and plug it into a formula with your high school G.P.A. and then figure out if they'd admit you. They way I figure it, you'd have to be a total f--king idiot not to get admitted to my university. But it's a big public university and they could care less if you fail out after the first semester.

Ok, I don't mean to be elitist (it did come off that way, I'm sorry), but scoring 1000 is easily achievable and where all american students are expected after investing 3 years into a legitimate high school. So, yeah many kids don't get 1,000, but one would hope that is because they either didn;t care about the test, were lousy lousy students, or were smart students who didn't invest time in learning and knowledge, and for that yeah there is little excuse.
