OT: admission standards for U of I

I'm about to be a senior in high school, and iowa is one of my top choices, my GPA isn't stellar (or really, good, or even mediocre, okay its piss poor) so i'll be relying on a good SAT and some good extra curriculars and community service (and a whole lot of other stuff that i dont see why a university would give a shit about but my schools college counselor says are important).

So what kind of SAT score do i need to make for U of I?

I'm also applying from texas, so if anybody has some stories or suggestions or anything that would also be appreciated.

thank you,
