Discussion of SDSU's Admissions Standards:

SDSU, San Diego State University is one of the larger and more selective of the campuses in the California State University System. Roughly one-third of applicants get accepted. The green and blue dots in the above graph represent accepted students. The majority of successful applicants had "B+" averages or higher, SAT scores (RW+M) of 950 or higher, and ACT scores of 18 or better. Higher grades and test scores improve your chances of admission significantly. You'll notice that some students with lower grades and scores were accepted, and also that there are many spots of red (rejected students) in the middle of the graph. Some students with grades and test scores that seem to be on target for San Diego State University will still get rejected.

What makes the difference between an acceptance and a rejection? Unlike the University of California System, the California State University admission process is not holistic. Except for EOP students, applicants do not need to submit letters of recommendation or an application essay, and extracurricular involvement is not part of the standard application. Thus, the reason why an applicant with adequate scores and grades would be rejected tends to come down to a couple factors such as insufficient college preparatory classes, high school classes that weren't challenging, or an incomplete application.
