Discussion of UConn's Admissions Standards:

The University of Connecticut is a selective public university that accepts around half of all applicants. Students who get in tend to have grades and SAT/ACT scores that are at least a little above average. In the graph above, the blue and green dots represent accepted students. The majority of successful applicants had high school averages of "B" or better, combined SAT scores of 1100 or higher, and ACT composite scores of 22 or better. Your chance of being admitted increases significantly if your GPA is up in the "A" range.

You'll see that there are quite a few red dots (rejected students) and yellow dots (waitlisted students) mixed in with the green and blue in the middle section of the graph. Quite a few students with grades and test scores that were on target for the University of Connecticut did not receive an acceptance letter. At the same time, note that a some students were accepted with test scores and grades that were below the norm. This is because UConn's admissions process is based on more than numbers. UConn accepts the Common Application and has holistic admissions. The admissions folks will want to see that you have taken challenging high school courses, not easy "A"s. Also, the they will want to see a winning essay, interesting extracurricular activities, an engaging short answer, and strong letters of recommendation (these are optional, but can obviously help). Note that UConn super-scores the SAT and ACT, so you'll want to send in all your scores if you took the exam multiple times.
