Discussion of the CU-Boulder's Admissions Standards:

Although the University of Colorado Boulder has a relatively high acceptance rate, successful applicants typically have grades and test scores that are above average. In the graph above, the blue and green dots represent accepted students. The great majority of admitted applicants had a high school average of "B" or higher, a combined SAT score of 1050 or higher (RW+M), and an ACT composite score of 21 or higher. The higher those numbers, the better. You'll notice very few rejected students (red dots) or waitlisted students (yellow dots) in the upper-right corner of the graph.

Note that there are a few red and yellow dots in the middle of the graph, so some students with grades and test scores that were on target for CU did not get accepted. Note also that several students were accepted with test scores and grades a bit below the norm. This is because the University of Colorado has holistic admissions. CU takes into consideration the rigor of your high school courses, your application essays, and your extracurricular activities. Student also have the option of sending letters of recommendation. Applicants to the College of Music need to audition.
