Bowling Green State University admissions aren't overly selective, but you will need decent grades and test scores to be admitted. In the graph above, the blue and green dots represent accepted students. Successful applicants typically have high school averages of "B-" or higher, combined SAT scores of 1350 or higher, and ACT composite scores of 18 or better.
You'll notice a few red dots (rejected students) and yellow dots (waitlisted students) mixed in with the green and blue on the left and lower portions of the graph. A few students with grades and test scores that were on target for Bowling Green were not admitted. The opposite is also true -- some students got in with grades and test scores that were a bit below the norm. This is because Bowling Green's admissions process is about more than numerical data. The admissions folks will want to see that you have taken rigorous college preparatory courses, not courses that get you an easy "A." The university will also take into consideration factors such as a student's contribution to campus diversity, a student's special talents, and a student's socioeconomic background.
