Discussion of Towson's Admissions Standards:

With an acceptance rate just under 75%, Towson University is moderately selective. The admissions bar isn't overly high, but applicants will need solid standardized test scores and grades to be admitted. In the scattergram above, the blue and green dots represent accepted students. The great majority of successful applicants had a combined SAT score (RW+M) of 1050 or higher, an ACT composite of 21 or better, and a "B" or higher GPA. Slightly higher test scores improve your chances measurably.

Note that some of the red and yellow dots overlap with the blue and green in the middle of the graph. Some students with grades and test scores that were on target for Towson were not admitted. You'll also notice some accepted students with grades and scores a bit below the norm. This is because Towson has holistic admissions -- the university is a member of the Common Application, and the admissions folks are evaluating students based on more than numerical data. A rigorous high school curriculum, winning essay, strong letters of recommendation, and interesting extracurricular activities all contribute to a successful application. Also, some majors have additional requirements such as auditions or minimum GPAs.
