Midwestern Colleges for a 18 on the ACT

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

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

Looking at the most recent published freshman class ACT scores for all Midwestern colleges, we've found 71 schools where submitting a 18 with your college application places you around the middle ACT score range of admitted students' average ACT scores. They represent the most popular schools where you will be a competitive applicant and those which have historically accepted a 18 ACT score. You can view your reach schools and safety schools by using the admission chance filter. 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 a good ACT 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 test takers of the ACT entrance exam. The score indicates you've done a below average job answering the questions on the English, Math, Reading and Science sections of the test. Since your score is on the lower end of the range, consider taking a test prep course and re-taking the ACT to see if you can do better.

What is the SAT equivalent to a 18 ACT score?
