Discussion of Lewis & Clark's Admissions Standards:

Lewis & Clark is a highly selective college, and successful applicants tend to have grades and standardized test scores that are well above average. Over a third of all applicants will not be admitted. In the scattergram above, the blue and green dots represent students who got in to Lewis & Clark. Most had SAT scores of 1200 or higher, an ACT composite of 25 or higher, and a high school average of a "B+" or higher. Grades and test scores above these lower ranges will improve an applicant's chances, and you can see that the great majority of admitted students had grades in the "A" range. Note that grades matter much, much more than test scores -- Lewis & Clark has test-optional admissions.

Note also that there are quite a few 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 Lewis & Clark did not get in. On the flip side, some students were accepted with test scores and grades a little below the norm (but note that none got in with a GPA below a "B"). These seeming discrepancies are because Lewis & Clark has holistic admissions and makes admissions decisions based on more than numbers. L&C uses the Common Application and will be looking for a winning application essay, meaningful extracurricular activities, and strong letters of recommendation. Students who apply using the test-optional path must also submit a portfolio of academic work. Applicants can further strengthen their applications by doing an optional interview.
