+ "Middle 50%" means that 25% of admitted first-year students exceeded these ranges and 25% of regularly admitted first-year students had scores, grade-point averages and class ranks (where known) below these ranges. Rutgers conducts a holistic review of each student's application that takes into consideration many more factors than test scores and high school rank or cumulative grade-point average. (See How We Make Decisions.)

* Grade-point average is on a 4.0 weighted scale, that is with a range from 0 ("F") to 4.5 ("A+").

** High school percentile ranks are limited to those applicants who report a class rank.
