At Rhodes, your application is evaluated based on many factors, not just numbers. We thoroughly review every application to learn what makes each student unique. The following information is a statistical representation of our first-year students. In addition to course selection, grades and test scores, we value a variety of qualities such as leadership, initiative, creativity, athletic ability, along with ethnic, socio-economic, geographic, and gender diversity. Because Rhodes has a long history of a student-run Honor System, we also look for evidence of integrity and positive contributions to the community and society in general. We welcome the chance to speak one-on-one with prospective students as they consider whether Rhodes is the right college for them.
