Discussion of Washington College's Admissions Standards

Washington College has selective admissions—nearly half of all applicants will not get in, and the applicant pool tends to be fairly strong. Most admitted students had grades and standardized test scores that were above average. In the graph above, the blue and green dots represent students who won admission. Most had SAT scores of 1000 or higher, an ACT composite of 20 or higher, and a high school average of a "B" or higher. The majority of admitted students had grades up in the "A" range. Grades matter much more than test scores, for Washington College has a test-optional policy for all students with qualifying high school GPAs.

Washington College, like most selective colleges and universities, has holistic admissions, so grades and test scores are just part of the admissions equation. This explains why there are a few red dots (rejected students) and yellow dots (waitlisted students) mixed in with the green and blue in the middle of the graph. It also explains why some students were accepted with test scores and grades below the norm. Washington College uses the Common Application, and the admissions folks will be looking for a strong application essay, meaningful extracurricular activities, and positive letters of recommendation. Also, Washington College takes into consideration the rigor of your high school courses, not just your grades. And if you visit the campus in Chestertown, be sure to sign up for an interview.
