Discussion of Union College's Admissions Standards:

Union College has selective admissions, and well over half of all applicants will not be admitted. Students will need to have a strong academic record to get in. Standardized test scores matter far less than grades because Union has test-optional admissions except for the law and medicine programs. In the graph above, the blue and green dots represent students who won admission. Most had SAT scores of 1200 or higher, an ACT composite of 25 or higher, and a high school average of a "B+" or better. The majority of admitted students had grades up in the "A" range.

Note that there are quite a few red dots (rejected students) and yellow dots (waitlisted students) mixed in with the green and blue throughout the graph. Some students with grades and test scores that were on target for Union College did not get in. Note also that a few students were accepted with grades and test scores a bit below the norm. This is because Union College uses the Common Application and has holistic admissions. the admissions folks will be looking for a strong application essay, meaningful extracurricular activities, and positive letters of recommendation. Also, Union College takes into consideration the rigor of your high school courses, not just your grades. Finally, you can further strengthen your application by doing an optional interview (Union "strongly encourages" an interview).
