Understanding Admissions Statistics
Carleton College's Admission Statistics can help you to understand the likelihood of being accepted. Compare your SAT and ACT scores to previously accepted students. If your scores are lower than average, that may mean you should try to retake the exam or look at schools that better fit your scores. A college's acceptance rates and selectivity are a good way to judge how difficult it is to be admitted.
Low acceptance rates and high selectivity means it could be difficult to be accepted at that college.
