Scattergrams visually display historical admissions decisions using previous students' GPAs and SATs/ACTs from your high school. While colleges rarely have a hard 'line in the sand' when it comes to standardized test scores, these scattergrams provide a guidepost to gauge probability of an acceptance. The best test result will be reflected for students who have taken both the SAT and ACT.
To view a scattergram, add the college to your My Colleges Tab. If the college is not added to the My College tab, you will not be able to view the scattergrams.
Once there, Click on the College tile. It will not matter which column it appears in. It can be suggest through the applied column.
Navigate down in the college tile to the scattergram. It will be displayed, with the coordinating colors from the legend for outcomes.
You may use the Zoom tool at the bottom to zoom into students with overlapping results. This will spread out the data for a cleaner view.
Percentile lines will show students who fall in these ranges and the outcomes.
Adjustments can be made to settings as well, by selecting enhancements to your view.

The Acceptance Heatmap overlay provides color sections of the graph to show those students who were accepted or not based on the GPA and test results. These sections are color coordinated in green - yellow - red and percentages are included in each section.
