Discussion of USC's Admissions Standards:

Over a third of applicants to the University of South Carolina don't get in. The great majority of 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. Most students who got in had high school averages of "B" or better, combined SAT scores of 1050 or higher (RW+M), and ACT composite scores of 21 or better. The higher those numbers are, the better your chances of getting an acceptance letter. Very few students with "A" averages and strong test scores were rejected.

Note that there are some red dots (rejected students) and yellow dots (waitlisted students) hidden behind the green and blue in the middle of the graph. This means that some students with grades and test scores that were on target for USC did not get accepted. Note also that quite a few students were accepted with test scores and grades a bit below the norm. This is because the University of South Carolina's admissions process is not about simple numbers. The university takes into consideration the rigor of your high school courses, and in some cases the school will consider your personal circimstances, special talents, extracurricular activities, and evidence of leadership ability.
