Discussion of Tulane's Admissions Standards:

About three-quarters of all applicants to Tulane University don't get in. Successful applicants will need grades and standardized test scores that are significantly above average. In the graph above, the blue and green dots represent accepted students. You can see that the majority of successful applicants had high school GPAs of 3.5 or higher, combined SAT scores of about 1300 or better, and ACT composite scores of 28 or higher. The higher those grades and test scores, the better your chances are of receiving an acceptance letter.

Note that there are a lot of 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 Tulane University did not win admission. Note also that some students were accepted with test scores and grades a little bit below the norm. This is because Tulane, like most of the country's top private universities, uses The Common Application and has holistic admissions. The Tulane admissions folks take into consideration the rigor of your high school courses, your application essay, extracurricular activities, and letters of recommendation.
