With a 23 on the ACT, these are the Eastern colleges you have a competitive chance to get into

Looking at the most recent published freshman class ACT scores for all Eastern colleges, we've found 158 schools where submitting a 23 with your college application places you around the middle ACT score range of admitted students' average ACT scores.

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