Fewer than a half of all Agnes Scott College applicants get accepted. To get in, you're going to need grades that are above average, and strong SAT or ACT scores can also help. In the scattergram above, the blue and green dots represent accepted students. You can see that most successful applicants had averages in the "B" range or higher, SAT scores of about 1600 or higher, and ACT composite scores of 22 or higher. A high percentage of applicants had grades up in the "A" range.
Note that there are a few red and yellow dots (rejected and waitlisted students) hidden behind the green and blue in the middle section of the graph. Some students who had grades and test scores that were on target for Agnes Scott did not get in. Note also that a few students were accepted with test scores and grades below the norm. This is because Agnes Scott, like most selective liberal arts colleges, has holistic admissions. The college uses the Common Application, and the admissions folks will be looking for a rigorous high school curriculum, strong extracurricular involvement, glowing letters of recommendation, and a winning application essay. If your test scores aren't ideal, note that you can do an interview or send a graded paper instead of submitting SAT or ACT scores. The college will also consider the Common Application's Arts Supplement and Athletics Supplement when appropriate.
