Baylor is a private university that accepts around half of applicants. Most students who get accepted have above average test scores and grades. As you can see in the graph above, the blue and green dots represent accepted students. The majority of successful applicants had high school averages of "B" or higher, SAT scores of about 1650 or higher, and ACT composite scores of 22 or higher. The higher those numbers, the better your chance of getting in.
Note that there are some red and yellow dots (rejected and waitlisted students) hidden behind the green and blue, especially to the left of the graph's center line. Some students with grades and test scores that were on target for Baylor did not get in. Note also that some students were accepted with test scores and grades below the norm. This is because Baylor's admission process often takes into consideration non-numerical information such as letters of recommendation, short answer responses, and a resume. The university is also interested in the rigor of your high school courses -- students who take challenging college preparatory courses will have an edge over students who didn't challenge themselves in high school.
