Discussion of Washington State's Admissions Standards:

With an acceptance rate around 80%, Washington State University isn't unreasonably selective, and most hard working students have a good shot of getting in. In the graph above, the green and blue dots represent accepted students. As you can see, the majority of students who got in had a GPA of 3.0 or higher, an SAT score (RW+M) above 950, and an ACT composite score of 18 or higher. Slightly higher grades and test scores increase your chances of being accepted measurably.

On the other hand, note that a few students were accepted with test scores and grades a bit below the norm. Washington State University gives the most weight to grades and test scores, but they will also consider your personal experiences and they give applicants the option to submit a personal statement. Students who show some kind of interesting talent or have a compelling story to tell will often get a close look even if grades and test scores are a little less than ideal. Also, Washington State is looking at the types of high school courses you've taken, not just your grades. A rigorous academic record is important.
