Discussion of Bradley University's Admissions Standards:

Bradley University has selective admissions: roughly a third of all applicants will not get in, and students will need grades and standardized test scores that are at least a little above average to impress the admissions folks. In the graph above, the blue and green dots represent students who received acceptance letters. The great majority of admitted students had and ACT composite score of 18 or higher, a combined SAT score (RW+M) of  950 or higher, and an unweighted high school GPA of a "B" or better. Having grades and test scores above these lower ranges will significantly improve your chances of being admitted, and most successful applicants have grades in the "B+" to "A" range.

You can see that there are some red dots (rejected students) and yellow dots (waitlisted students) mixed in with the green and blue on the left side of the graph. This overlap tells us that some students who had test scores that were on target for Bradley University did not get get in. Note also that a few students were accepted with standardized test scores and grades that were a bit below the norm. These seeming inconsistencies are the result of Bradley's holistic admissions policy -- the university makes its admissions decision based on more than numerical data. Your work history and extracurricular activities can play a role in the admissions process, and a strong application essay can also improve your chances. Bradley also recommends that students submit one or more letters of recommendation to help flesh out your application.  Finally, Bradley University, like all selective colleges, takes into consideration the how challenging your high school curriculum was. AP, IB, Dual Enrollment, and Honors classes can all strengthen your application.
