Discussion of Rutgers' Admissions Standards:

More than a third of applicants to the New Brunswick campus of Rutgers University don't get in. Successful applicants will need grades and standardized test scores that are at least a little above average. In the graph above, the blue and green dots represent students who won admission. The majority of successful applicants had SAT scores of 1050 or higher (RW+M), an ACT composite of 21 or higher, and a high school average of a B+ or higher. The higher those test scores and grades, the better your chances of admission. You'll notice that nearly all applicants in the upper right corner of the graph were accepted.

Note that there are a few red dots (rejected students) and yellow dots (waitlisted students) hidden behind the green and blue in the middle of the graph. Some students with grades and test scores that were on target for Rutgers did not get accepted. Note also that several students were accepted with test scores and grades a bit below the norm. This is because Rutgers makes decisions based on more than numbers. All prospective freshman must write an application essay, and they can also strengthen their applications by demonstrating depth in their extracurricular activities. Also, Rutgers takes into consideration the rigor of your high school courses, not just your grades. Note that Rutgers does not require letters of recommendation.
