Discussion of UMBC's Admissions Standards:

Over a third of applicants to the University of Maryland Baltimore County don't get in. 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 a pretty clear division at an SAT score of about 1100 (RW+M) and an ACT score of 23. Most students above that score got in, and most below it did not. You'll also notice that the majority of successful applicants had high school averages of "B" or higher. Higher test scores and grades obviously improve your chances of getting an acceptance letter, and almost no students with "A" averages and above average SAT scores were rejected.

Note that there are a few red dots (rejected students) and yellow dots (waitlisted students) hidden behind the green and blue in the middle of the graph. Some students with grades and test scores that were on target for UMBC did not get accepted. Note also that several students were accepted with test scores and grades a bit below the norm. This is because UMBC uses The Common Application and has holistic admissions. UMBC takes into consideration the rigor of your high school courses, your application essay, extracurricular activities, and letters of recommendation.
