Honestly I dont know, I don't work for is one to answer this question? I do not know the deciding factor that granted my admissions, nor can I speculate this...

I wasn't a great student in high school. got around 3.3 with little to no effort. Pulled a 31 on my ACT with a 35 in math which helped when trying to get into engineering. I'm a good writer too, so my essays were pretty on point. What probably put me over the edge the though were my parents being legacies and a letter of recomendation from the superintendent of my school district who used to play football for the Badgers.
ACT: 31 Male

I had a 3.6 GPA and 27 ACT score, and was deferred and eventually let in. I only did one sport in high school, but took part in a summer foreign exchange program.

Don't even apply. They make it seem like it's a good school but really it is such a waste of 4 years. Don't put yourself through that!
ACT: 35 Female

For the Wisconsin School of Business in particular, focus on grades, extracurricular involvement, and your field of interest. For the essays, write on something you are truly interested in. The admissions process is very holistic. It is not solely grades (which is why some people complain they had all A's and did not get in).
ACT: 31 Male
