Scattergram Graph

Historical application results (admit, deny, waitlist) are graphed as a scattergram; applicant average GPA appears on the y-axis and applicant average SAT scores on the x-axis.

For an applicant to be represented on a scattergram for a given college, three things must be present:

1. an application result (accepted or denied)
2. a GPA
3. a test score for the type of test for which you are running the scattergram

Note about calculation of averages: If, for example, a test score is not present for the SAT (2400 scale) for some students, those students' dots/crosses are not figured into the averageson the scattergram. This means that those students will not show up on the scattergram for the 2400 scale--which means that their Test Scores and GPAs will not figure into the Accepted Average displayed on the scattergram.

Select colleges at the top of your screen, then colleges home.  Enter in the name of the college you would like to look up in the search engine. Click search. Click on the name of the college you entered. Under acceptance rate, you will find a link for "Check out Scattergrams to see how this relates to you.' Click on that link.
