The prospects for the ν_e appearance analyis in the MINOS experiment are reviewed. A novel approach for selecting CC ν_e events is also described in addition to a method to measure the intrinsic beam ν_e background using the measured ν[over-bar]_µ rate. The outlook for other ν[over-bar]_µ physics analyses in MINOS is qualitatively described alongside the possibility of reversing the current in the NuMI horns to obtain an anti-neutrino beam.
