About a quarter of applicants to the University of Louisville will not be admitted. Most successful applicants have average or above average grades and standardized test scores. In the graph above, the blue and green dots represent accepted students. You can see that the majority of successful applicants had ACT scores of 21 or higher and a combined SAT score of 1500 or higher. Most accepted students had a "B" or higher high school average. If your grades are up in the "A" range and you have an ACT composite score over 22, you have an extremely good chance of getting in.
Note that there are a few red dots (rejected students) and yellow dots (waitlisted students) hidden behind the green and blue in the middle of the graph. A handful of students with grades and test scores that were on target for Louisville did not get accepted. Note also that quite a few students were accepted with test scores and grades a bit below the norm. This is because the University of Louisville's admissions folks are looking at the rigor of your high school courses, not just your grades. They will want to see the successful completion of challenging college preparatory classes. Also, admissions standards vary among Louisville's different colleges and programs. Applicants to the School of Music must audition.
