Christopher Newport is a public university located in Southeastern Virginia. The university's admissions have become more selective in recent years, and in 2011 41% of applicants were not admitted. In the graph above, the blue and green dots represent accepted students. You can see that the majority of successful applicants had high school GPAs of "B+" or better, combined SAT scores of about 1600 or higher, and ACT composite scores of 22 or better. A significant percentage of successful applicants had grades up in the "A" range.

Test scores and grades are extremely important, but they are just one part of the Christopher Newport application. This is why you'll notice rejected and waitlisted students mixed in with accepted students in the middle of the graph. CNU uses the Common Application, and the admissions folks will be looking to see that you have taken challenging high school courses, written an engaging essay, and participated in interesting extracurricular activities. You can further strengthen your application by submitting an optional teacher evaluation and doing an optional interview. The latter is a great way to demonstrate interest.
