college acceptance rate calculator

These are the acceptance rates of a list of colleges.

Here are the current acceptance rates for a list of colleges. You can use these to get a basic idea what your chances for admission is.

To calculate your chance of getting accepted into a school, you can use this formula: (SAT score-lowest SAT score of a student admitted)/40

The resulting number will be the percentage chance that you have in getting accepted into the college. For example, if you have a 140/160 on your SAT and the lowest SAT score of someone who got accepted was 1460/1600, then your chances of getting into Harvard is 0%. Remember that this calculator is only an estimate, schools take many other factors than just test scores into account when making admissions decisions.

College Acceptance Rate

College acceptance rates are a great way to compare schools. This can be particularly useful when you’re doing your research and thinking, “I didn’t know there were so many colleges! How do I even choose?”

The college acceptance rate is the percentage of students who are admitted to the college (usually out of 100). So when you look at this table, a low number means that the school is more selective and therefore more difficult to get into. What counts as a “high” or “low” number varies by college, but generally speaking:

• A high acceptance rate means that it’s easier for students to get in
• A low acceptance rate means that it’s harder for students to get in
