Discussion of Emerson's Admissions Standards:

Only a half of the students who apply to Emerson College will get in. Successful applicants typically have grades and standardized test scores that are well above average. In the scattergram above, the blue and green dots represent accepted students, and you can see that most students who got into Emerson had high school averages of A- or better, SAT scores (RW+M) above 1200, and ACT composite scores above 25. Good grades and test scores, however, aren't all that is needed to get admitted to Emerson. If you look at the red (rejected students) and yellow (waitlisted students) on the graph, you'll see that some students with high grades and test scores were rejected.

Emerson College, like most of the country's selective colleges, has holistic admissions, so successful applicants need to have strengths that go beyond numerical data. Emerson uses the Common Application, and competitive applications should have a winning essay, strong letters of recommendation, and interesting extracurricular activities. Also, your good grades should be part of a challenging high school curriculum. Finally, some programs at Emerson will have audition, interview, or portfolio requirements.
