Discussion of Baruch College's Admissions Standards:

Baruch College, part of the CUNY system, is the most selective of all the CUNY colleges. In 2015, less than a third of all applicants received an acceptance letter. To get in, you're probably going to need both grades and standardized test scores that are above average. In the graph above, the blue and green dots represent accepted students. Most admitted students had a high school average of "B" or better, a combined SAT score of 1100 or higher (RW+M), and an ACT composite score of 22 or higher. Higher test scores will certainly improve your chances, and you can see that many applicants had grades up in the "A" range.

Note that the middle of the graph includes quite a few red dots (rejected students) and a handful of yellow dots (waitlisted students). Some students with grades and test scores that were on target for Baruch were not admitted. At the same time, you can see that some students were accepted with test scores and grades that were below the norm. This is because the CUNY application used by all of the CUNY campuses is evaluated holistically. Baruch College and the other CUNY schools want to see high grades in rigorous courses and strong test scores, but they also take into consideration your application essay and letters of recommendation.
