Discussion of Kalmazoo College's Admissions Standards:

Kalamazoo College is a selective liberal arts college, and applicants will need solid grades and standardized test scores to get in. About a third of all applicants are not admitted. In the graph above, the blue and green dots represent students who won admission. Most had SAT scores (RW+M) of 1100 or higher, an ACT composite of 22 or higher, and a high school average of a "B+" or better. Grades and test scores above these lower ranges will improve your chances, and keep in mind that the majority of admitted students had grades in the "A" range.

You'll notice that there are a few red dots (rejected students) and yellow dots (waitlisted students) mixed in with the green and blue througout the graph. This means that some students with grades and test scores that were on target for Kalamazoo were not admitted. Note also that a few students were accepted with test scores and grades a bit below the norm. This is because Kalamazoo College has holistic admissions -- the college does its best to evaluate the whole applicant, not just an applicant's numerical measures. Kalamazoo College uses the Common Application, and as part of that application the admissions folks will be looking for a strong application essay, meaningful extracurricular activities, and positive letters of recommendation. Also, Kalamazoo College, like all selective colleges, takes into consideration the rigor of your high school courses, not just your grades. AP, IB and Honors classes can strengthen your application. Finally, you can further strengthen your application by doing an optional interview and, if appropriate, the Common Application Arts Supplement.
