​Discussion of Washington University's Admissions Standards:

With an acceptance rate below 20%, Washington University in St. Louis is one of the most selective universities in the country. In the graph above, the blue and green dots represent accepted students. As you can see, acceptances are concentrated in the upper right corner. Students who were accepted to Washington University tended to have "A" averages, SAT scores (RW+M) of 1300 or higher, and ACT composite scores of 28 or higher. Test scores above these lower ranges will improve your chances of being admitted.

Note that there's a lot of red and yellow hidden behind the green and blue -- many students with grades and test scores that were on target for WashU did not get in. Note also that a few students were accepted with test scores and grades below the norm. This is because Washington University has holistic admissions -- the admissions folks are evaluating students based on more than numerical data. A rigorous high school curriculum, winning essay, and interesting extracurricular activities all contribute to a successful application.
