Discussion of Berry College's Admissions Standards:

As the scattergram above shows, Berry College has selective admissions. The blue and green dots represent accepted students, so you can see that most admitted students had a GPA of a "B+" or higher, an ACT composite score of 20 or better, and a combined SAT score (RW+M) above 1000. The chances for admission are better with grades and test scores a little above these lower ranges.

In the middle of the graph, you'll notice a few red dots (rejected students) and yellow dots (waitlisted students) overlapping with the green and blue. This means that some students who were potentially on target for admission to Berry College did not get in. On the flip side, you can see that a few students were accepted with test scores and grades below the norm. This is because Berry College has holistic admissions, so the admissions officers are evaluating students based on more than numerical data. Whether you use the Common Application or Berry's own application, the college will want to see a strong personal essay, interesting extracurricular activities, and positive letters of recommendation.
