Discussion of Salem College's Admissions Standards:

Salem College is a moderately selective women's college located in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. Roughly a third of all applicants get rejected, and most successful applicants have solid grades and test scores. In the graph above, the blue and green dots represent accepted students. You can see that the majority of admitted applicants had high school averages in the "B" range or higher, combined SAT scores of 950 or higher (RW+M), and ACT composite scores of 18 or better. Strong students will find plenty of company, for a significant percentage of Salem College students had "A" averages in high school.

Note that there are a few red dots (rejected students) scattered throughout the graph -- a few students with grades and test scores that were on target for Salem did not get in. At the same time, you'll see that a few students were accepted with test scores and grades below the ideal. This is because Salem's admissions process is holistic. Whether you use the Common Application or the Salem application, the admissions folks will want to see that you have taken a challenging high school curriculum, written a strong application essay, participated in interesting extracurricular activities, and received positive letters of recommendation. School of Music applicants will also need to audition.
