Discussion of Illinois State's Admissions Standards:

Illinois State University is moderately selective—in 2015, 12% of all applicants were not admitted. Successful applicants tend to have grades and standardized test scores that are average or better. In the graph above, the blue and green dots represent accepted students, and most of them had a high school average of B- or higher, an ACT composite score of 18 or higher, and a combined SAT score (RW+M) of at least 950. An applicant's chances for admission increase measurably with grades and test scores above these lower ranges, and many applicants have grades up in the "A" range.

In the middle of the graph, you'll find a bit of red (rejected students) and yellow (waitlisted students) mixed in with the blue and green. Some students with grades and test scores that were on target for Illinois State still got rejected. At the same time, a few students were accepted with test scores and grades below the norm. These seeming inconsistencies occur for a couple reasons. For one, some programs at Illinois State are more selective than others. Also, students with borderline grades or test scores are encouraged to submit an optional academic personal statement to explain their academic performance and/or interests.
