More students, in general, submit scores from the SAT, but neither test is preferred over the other. Students with high grades and high test scores have a decent shot of being admitted to Bacone. There is no essay or personal statement component of Bacone's application.

Outside of the classroom, students can join a number of on-campus clubs and organizations.
