With an acceptance rate close to 20%, the University of California Los Angeles is one of the most selective public universities in the country. On the graph above, blue and green represent accepted students. As you can see, the majority of students who got into UCLA had a GPA over 3.6, an SAT score (CR+M+W) above 1700, and an ACT composite score of 24 or higher. Chances of admission improve as those numbers go up. Realize, however, that hidden beneath the blue and green on the graph is a lot of red -- many students with high GPAs and test scores get rejected from UCLA.

Note also that a number of students were accepted with test scores and grades below the norm. Like all of the University of California schools, UCLA has holistic admissions, so the admissions officers are evaluating students based on more than numerical data. Students who show some kind of remarkable talent or have a compelling story to tell will often get a close look even if grades and test scores aren't up to the ideal. Make sure your application has strong essays.
