Discussion of Pace's Admissions Standards:

Admission to Pace University isn't overly selective, but applicants will need to have grades and test scores that are at least average. In 2015, 84% of applicants were admitted. In the graph above, the blue and green dots represent admitted students. Most successful applicants had a high school average of "B-" or better, a combined SAT score of 1000 or higher (RW+M), and an ACT composite score of 20 or higher. Applicants are not required to submit scores on the optional essay for the SAT or ACT. If you're a strong student, you'll have plenty of company at Pace--you can see that a significant number of applicants had high school grades in the "A" range.

You'll also notice that there are a few red dots (rejected students) and yellow dots (waitlisted students) hidden behind the green and blue throughout the graph. Some students with grades and test scores that were on target for Pace did not receive acceptance letters. You can also see that some students were accepted with grades and standardized test scores that were a bit below the norm. This is because admission to Pace is about more than the numbers. Whether you use the Pace application or the Common Application, you will be evaluated holistically. The admissions officers at Pace take into consideration the rigor of your high school courses, your application essay, extracurricular activities, and letters of recommendation. Students who wish to study performing arts will also need to audition or interview.

If you are sure Pace is your top choice university and you wish to increase your chances of being admitted, you can take advantage of the school's Early Decision admissions option. You'll be required to attend if admitted, but Early Decision applicants are typically admitted at a higher rate than regular decision applicants. This is partly because Early Decision is an excellent way to demonstrate your interest in the university.
