Discussion of Kentucky's Admissions Standards:

The University of Kentucky has a high acceptance rate, but realize that most successful applicants have average or above average grades and test scores. In the graph above, the blue and green dots represent accepted students. The great majority of successful applicants had ACT scores of 19 or higher and a combined SAT score of 1000 or higher. Most accepted students had a "B" or higher high school average. Higher test scores and grades obviously improve your chances of getting an acceptance letter, and almost no students with "A" averages and above average ACT 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 Kentucky did not get accepted. Note also that many students were accepted with test scores and grades a bit below the norm. This is because the University of Kentucky accepts The Common Application and has holistic admissions. Kentucky values more than empirical data. The admissions folks will take into consideration the rigor of your high school courses, your application essay, your extracurricular activities, and letters of recommendation.
