Discussion of Agnes Scott College's Admissions Standards:

Over a third of all Agnes Scott College applicants get rejected. To get in, you're going to need grades that are above average, and strong SAT or ACT scores can also help. In the scattergram above, the blue and green dots represent accepted students. You can see that most successful applicants had averages in the "B+" range or higher, SAT scores of about 1000 or higher  (RW+M), and ACT composite scores of 20 or higher. A high percentage of applicants had grades up in the "A" range. Realize that grades are much more important than standardized test scores: Agnes Scott College has a test-optional admissions policy, and applicants can choose to not submit SAT or ACT scores if they instead submit a graded writing sample or do an evaluative interview with an admissions counselor.

Note that there are a few red and yellow dots (rejected and waitlisted students) hidden behind the green and blue in the middle section of the graph. Some students who had grades and test scores that were on target for Agnes Scott did not get in. Note also that a few students were accepted with test scores and grades below the norm. This is because Agnes Scott, like most selective liberal arts colleges, has holistic admissions. The college uses the Common Application, and the admissions folks will be looking for a rigorous high school curriculum, strong extracurricular involvement, glowing letters of recommendation, and a winning application essay. If your test scores aren't ideal, note that you can do an interview or send a graded paper instead of submitting SAT or ACT scores. The college will also consider the Common Application's Arts Supplement and Athletics Supplement when appropriate.
