We have performed a study of MINOS sensitivity to numu->nue oscillations to various changes in the geometrical parameters of the NuMI beam, eg decay pipe length, target dimensions, target position, horn current, and separation between the two horns. The only parameters that suggest that an improvement may be possible, at the level of about 10% in the Figure of Merit, are the target dimensions and target position. The basic assumptions adopted for the parametric representation of the measurement errors and of reaction identification lead to a significantly lower background level from the high energy NC events than was calculated in NuMI-714.
