Discussion of Sweet Briar College's Admissions Standards:

Sweet Briar College is a private women's liberal arts college in Virginia. The college has a fairly high acceptance rate, but applicants will still need to have solid grades and standardized test scores to be admitted. In the graph above, the blue and green dots represent accepted students. The data show that the majority of successful applicants had high school GPAs of "B" or better, combined SAT scores of about 1000 or higher (RW+M), and ACT composite scores of 20 or better. The college tends to attract strong students, and you'll notice that many applicants had grades up in the "A" range.

Test scores and grades are just one part of the Sweet Briar application. Whether you use the Sweet Briar application or the Common Application, the admissions folks will be looking to see that you have taken challenging high school courses, written an engaging essay, and participated in interesting extracurricular activities. They will also want to see strong letters of recommendation -- one from a teacher and one from your guidance counselor. Be sure to get to know the college so that you can provide compelling answers to Sweet Briar's supplement to the Common Application. You'll want to be specific when answering the question, "What excites you most about attending Sweet Briar." This is a great place to demonstrate interest.
