Discussion of Mizzou's Admissions Standards

Roughly three out of four applicants to the University of Missouri main campus in Columbia will get in. Successful applicants tend to have standardized test scores and high school grades that are either average or above average. In the scattergram above, the blue and green dots represent accepted students. You can see that the majority of successful applicants had high school grades in the "A" and "B" range, combined SAT scores of 1000 or higher (RW+M), and ACT composite scores of 20 or better. Slightly higher ACT scores increase your chances of receiving an acceptance letter considerably.

Note that the left hand side of the graph has some red dots (rejected students) and yellow dots (waitlisted students) mixed in with the green and blue. Some students with grades and test scores that were on target for the University of Missouri did not get accepted. On the flip side, note that a few students were accepted with test scores and grades a little bit below the norm. This is because Mizzou's admissions process isn't strictly numerical. Admissions are not holistic, and your GPA and standardized test scores are by far the most important part of your application. However, the university does look at the rigor of your high school courses, and you'll need to show that you have taken enough college preparatory classes. Also, admission to specific schools at MU may be more competitive than others. Finally, Mizzou is a large Division I athletic school, so special athletic talent can play a role in the admissions process.
