Mills College has selective admissions -- more than a third of all applicants will receive rejection letters. 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 (CR+M+W) of 1600 or higher, and ACT composite scores of 22 or better. Your chances are significantly better if your numbers are above these lower ranges.

Note that there are quite a few red dots (rejected students) mixed in with the green and blue in the middle of the graph. Some students with grades and test scores that were on target for Mills College were not admitted. On the flip side, note that a few students were accepted with test scores and grades a little bit below the norm. This is because Mills's admissions process is qualitative as well as quantitative. The college uses The Common Application and has holistic admissions. The admissions folks take into consideration the rigor of your high school courses, your application essay, extracurricular activities, and letters of recommendation. Mills also asks all applicants to submit a graded high school paper, so make sure you have a piece of writing you're proud of. Finally, you can improve your chances of getting in by doing an optional interview. The interview is a great way to demonstrate your interest.
