Admissions Chances

Endicott College, which accepts over half of applicants, has a somewhat competitive admissions pool. However, Endicott also has a holistic admissions process and is test-optional, and admissions decisions are based on more than numbers. A strong application essay can strengthen your application, as can participation in meaningful extracurricular activities and a rigorous course schedule. The college is looking for students who will contribute to the campus community in meaningful ways, not just students who show promise in the classroom. While not required, Endicott strongly recommends campus visits and interviews for interested applicants. Note that students who plan to major in art, design, or photography are encouraged to submit a portfolio of 10 to 15 samples their work. Students with particularly compelling stories or achievements can still receive serious consideration even if their grades and scores are outside of Endicott College's average range.

In the scattergram above, the blue and green dots represent students who were accepted to Endicott College. Most had combined SAT scores (ERW+M) of 1000 or higher, an ACT composite of 20 or higher, and a high school average of a "B" or better. Grades and standardized test scores above these lower ranges will improve your chances, and you can see that many accepted students had high school averages up in the "A" range. Note that Endicott College is test-optional for most applicants, so grades and other elements of the application matter more than test scores in the application process.
