Discussion of TCU's Admissions Standards:

Nearly half of all applicants to Texas Christian University don't get in. Most 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 accepted students. You can see that the majority of successful applicants had at least "B+" averages in high school, and they had combined SAT scores of about 1050 or higher (RW+M), and ACT composite scores of 21 or higher. The higher your grades and standardized test scores, the better your chances are of receiving an acceptance letter.

Note that there are some red dots (rejected students) and yellow dots (waitlisted students) hidden behind the green and blue throughout the graph. Many students with grades and test scores that were on target for TCU failed to get in. Note also that some students were accepted with test scores and grades a little bit below the norm. This is because TCU, like many highly selective private colleges, uses The Common Application and has holistic admissions. The TCU admissions folks take into consideration the rigor of your high school courses, your application essay, extracurricular activities, and letters of recommendation. Applicants may also benefit from doing an optional interview and optional "Freedom of Expression" page.
