The Best Eastern Colleges for a 18 on the ACT

What Eastern colleges can I apply to with an ACT score of 18?

With a 18 on the ACT, these are the Eastern colleges you have a chance to get into

Looking at the most recent published freshman class ACT scores for all Eastern colleges, we've found 64 schools where a 18 ACT places you within or slightly outside the middle fifty percent of admitted students. The colleges are ranked by their position on our best colleges ranking. They represent the better schools you have a competitive chance of getting into and those which have historically accepted a 18 ACT score. Keep in mind, an ACT score alone won't get you admitted. It's equally important to have the GPA that the college is expecting for incoming students.

Is a 18 on the ACT a good score?

You can probably do better than a score of 18. It places you in the bottom 38th percentile nationally out of the 2 million students taking the ACT entrance exam this year. The score indicates you've done a below average job answering the questions on the English, Math, Reading and Science sections of the test.

For comparison purposes, a 18 on the ACT converts to a 970 on the SAT based on the College Board / ACT concordance. Not all colleges report both SAT and ACT score admission data so you should check our comparable listings for both standardized tests to find academically similar schools.
