4 College Information The following statistics represent the number of students who applied to each college or university, the number of acceptances and the number of students who matriculated at each institution. Data is sorted alphabetically and includes the Competitiveness Rating developed by Barron s Profiles of American Colleges. Barron s has a unique yet respected and comprehensive system for comparing every school s degree of admissions competitiveness. Colleges are rated from Most Competitive to Less Competitive and more. (Barron s Educational Series, 2015.) Most Competitive Even Superior students will encounter a great deal of competition for admission to colleges in this category. In general, these colleges require high school rank in the top 10% to 20% and grade averages of A to B+. Median freshman test scores are generally between 655 and 800 on the SAT and 29 and above on the ACT. These colleges admit only a small number of those who apply usually less than one third. Highly Competitive Colleges in this group generally look for students with grade averages of B+ to B and accept most of their students from the top 20% to 35% of the high school class. Median freshman test scores generally range from on the SAT and 27 or 28 on the ACT. These schools generally accept between one third and one half of their applicants. Very Competitive The colleges in this category generally admit students whose averages are no less that B- and who rank in the top 35% to 50% of their high school class. Median test scores are in the 573 to 619 range on the SAT and from 24 to 26 on the ACT. These schools generally accept between one half and three quarters of their applicants. Competitive This category is a broad one covering colleges that generally have median freshman test scores between 500 and 572 on the SAT and between 21 and 23 on the ACT. Some of these colleges require that students have high school averages of B- or better, although some state a minimum of C+ or C. Generally, these colleges prefer students in the top 50% to 65% of their graduating class and they accept between 75% and 85% of their applicants. Less Competitive Included in this category are colleges with median freshman test scores below 500 on the SAT and below 21 on the ACT. These colleges admit students with averages generally below C who rank in the top 65% of their graduating class. These colleges admit 85% or more of their applicants. Non Competitive These colleges require that students provide evidence of graduation from an accredited high school. Entrance exams are required for placement purposes. Special These are colleges whose programs are specialized; professional schools of art or music, nursing, or other specific disciplines. In general, the admissions criteria are not based primarily on academics but on evidence of talent or special interest.
