Discussion of Boise State University's Admissions Standards:

Roughly a quarter of all applicants to Boise State University will not get in. Successful applicants will need solid grades and standardized test scores to be admitted. In the graph above, the blue and green data points represent accepted students. As you can see, most students who received acceptance letters had high school GPAs of B- or better. Grades appear to be more important than standardized test scores for Boise State admissions. SAT and ACT scores span a wide range of performance. That said, most admitted students had combined SAT scores (RW+M) of 950 or higher and an ACT composite of 18 or higher. Having grades and scores above these lower ranges will improve your chances of being admitted. At the same time, grades or test scores below these numbers do not necessarily preclude admission.

You can see that there are a few red dots (rejected students) and yellow dots (waitlisted students) mixed in with the green and blue in the middle of the graph. Some students with grades and test scores that were on target for Boise State University did not get get in. Note also that some students were accepted with test scores and grades that are below the norm. This is because Boise State University's admission process is not entirely empirical. The school does have an equation, the "Admission Index," that uses test scores and GPA to determine whether or not students are admissible. If the admission index is satisfactory, applicants still need to demonstrate that they have taken enough college preparatory coursework in high school. If they have, they will likely be admitted. If they haven't, they still have a chance to be admitted under "provisional admission."
