Discussion of Kent State's Admissions Standards:

Kent State University admissions aren't overly selective, but you will need decent grades and test scores to be admitted. In 2015, 85% of applicants were admitted, and the majority had above average grades and standardized test scores. In the graph above, the blue and green dots represent accepted students. Successful applicants typically have high school averages of "B-" or higher, combined SAT scores of 950 or higher (RW+M), and ACT composite scores of 18 or better. Having grades and scores a bit above this lower range improves your chances significantly, and the university enrolls plenty of "A" students.

You'll notice a few red dots (rejected students) and yellow dots (waitlisted students) mixed in with the green and blue on the left and lower portions of the graph. A few students with grades and test scores that were on target for Kent State did not win admission. On the other hand, some students were admitted with grades and test scores that were a bit below the norm. This is because Kent State's admissions process is not entirely numerical. The admissions folks will want to see that you have taken rigorous college preparatory courses, not courses that get you an easy "A." Also, some majors at Kent State have special requirements and higher admissions standards than others.
