Discussion of Radford University's Admissions Standards:

Radford University has moderately selective admissions, but most hard-working high schools students with decent grades and standardized test scores will have a strong chance of being admitted. Roughly three-quarters of all applicants get acceptance letters. In the graph above, the green and blue data points represent admitted students. Nearly all admitted students had GPAs of 2.5 or higher, and the majority were solid "A" and "B" students. Like most colleges, Radford accepts both the SAT and ACT, although far more students submit SAT scores. Most admitted students had a combined SAT score (RW+M) of 950 or higher. Most admitted students who submitted ACT scores had a composite score of 18 or higher. Note that Radford began a test-optional admissions policy for students with GPAs of 3.50 or higher, but scores are still needed for merit-based scholarships. Radford super-scores your SAT, so you can submit the highest scores from different test dates.

You can see that there are a few red dots (rejected students) and yellow dots (waitlisted students) mixed in with the green and blue, especially on the lower left part of the graph. This suggests that some students who were on target for Radford University did not get get in. Note also that a few students were accepted with test scores and grades a bit below the norm. This type of pattern is common among schools that have holistic admissions and make decisions based on more than numerical data. Radford's application asks about family members who have attended the university so legacy status could be a factor in admission. The application asks about your work experiences, and you are also encouraged to include a one-page personal statement. Finally, like most colleges, Radford looks at the rigor of your high school courses, not just your grades. AP, IB, Dual Enrollment, and Honors courses all work to your advantage by demonstrating your college readiness.
