The ratio of undergraduate students to teachers at this college are 18, 1. Three other colleges that I'm also looking at are UNC, A&T, or Duke. There are no HS Chemistry required to be admitted to this college. Chemistry will be required to earn a degree in this area. The minimum HS GPA is 4.0 or higher.
