The Best Colleges for a 19 on the ACT

What colleges can I apply to with an ACT score of 19?

With a 19 on the ACT, these are the colleges you have a chance to get into

Looking at the most recent published freshman class ACT scores for all U.S. colleges, we've found 531 schools where a 19 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 19 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 19 on the ACT a good score?

A score of 19 is a little worse than average. It places you in the bottom 44th percentile nationally out of the 2 million students taking the ACT entrance exam this year. The score indicates you've done a slightly below average job answering the questions on the English, Math, Reading and Science sections of the test.

For comparison purposes, a 19 on the ACT converts to a 1010 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.
