Discussion of Clark University's Admissions Standards:

A little over half of all applicants to Clark University are admitted. In the graph above, the green and blue dots represent students who received acceptance letters. Strong grades are extremely important for Clark admissions, and most successful applicants had high school GPAs of a "B+" or better. A significant percentage of applicants had averages up in the "A" range. Standardized test scores are not overly important, for the university has test-optional admissions. Nevertheless, applicants do tend to have solid SAT and ACT scores. Most students who were admitted had SAT scores (RW+M) of 1050 or higher and an ACT composite of 21 or higher.

Note that quite a few red dots (rejected students) and yellow dots (waitlisted students) are mixed in with  the green and blue throughout the graph. This means that some students who had grades and test scores that were on target for Clark did not get get in. You'll also notice a few students were accepted with test scores and grades quite a bit below the norm. This is because Clark University has holistic admissions. To quote the university's admissions website, "We look at more than grades and scores on a sheet of paper. The committee reviews recommendations, essays, extracurricular activities and high school course selection, in addition to grades and exam scores." Clark University uses the Common Application, and a successful application will need to have a strong application essay, meaningful extracurricular activities, and positive letters of recommendation.
