Note also that a number of students were accepted with test scores and grades a bit below the norm. UNC Asheville has holistic admissions and accepts the Common Application. The admissions officers evaluate students based on more than numerical data. Students who show some kind of impressive talent or have a compelling story to tell will often get a close look even if their grades and test scores are a little below the norm. A winning essay, strong letters of recommendation, and interesting extracurricular activities can mean the difference between an acceptance and a rejection.
