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.

It's equally important to have the GPA that the college is expecting for incoming students.

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.
