Discussion of Saint Joseph's Admissions Standards:

Saint Joseph's University in Philadelphia has moderately selective admissions -- about a quarter of all applicants will not get in, and successful applicants tend to have grades and standardized test scores that are at least a little above average. In the scattergram above, the blue and green dots represent accepted students. You can see that the majority of admitted students had high school grades of "B" or better, combined SAT scores of about 1050 or higher, and ACT composite scores of 21 or better. A significant number of admitted students have grades up in the "A" range. Take note, however, that starting in the fall 2014 grades became much more important than standardized test scores: Saint Joseph's is now one of the hundreds of colleges with test-optional admissions.

In the middle of the graph, you'll notice some yellow dots (waitlisted students) and a few red dots (rejected students) mixed in with the green and blue. This means that some students with grades and test scores that were on target for Saint Joseph's were not admitted. At the same time, you can see that some students were accepted with standardized test scores and grades that were a bit below the norm. This is because Saint Joseph's has holistic admissions. Whether you use the Common Application or Saint Joseph's's own application, the admissions officers will be looking for a winning essay, interesting extracurricular activities (including service and community involvement), and a strong letter of recommendation.
