About half of all applicants to Georgia Southern University will not receive an acceptance letter. The scattergram above for Georgia Southern is unusual in that there's a fairly distinct line around 1000 for the SAT but no such division for GPA. This suggests that the university places more weight on standardized test scores than on grades, a practice that is counter to most institutions' admissions policies. In the graph above, the blue and green dots represent students who won admission. Most had SAT scores of 1000 or higher, an ACT composite of 20 or higher, and high school averages all over the board, from "A" to "C+". Keep in mind, however, that the university is selective and a significant number of successful applicants are up in the "A" range.

Note that there are a some 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 Georgia Southern did not get get in. Note also that a few students were accepted with test scores and grades a bit below the norm.
