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 colleges are a good match for your score

Looking at the most recent published freshman class ACT scores for all U.S. colleges, we've found 586 schools where submitting a 19 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 19 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.

If a 19 isn't strong enough to get into your dream school, consider taking a test prep course to see if you can raise your score.
