What New England colleges can I apply to with an ACT score of 30?

With a 30 on the ACT, these are the New England colleges you have a competitive chance to get into

Looking at the most recent published freshman class ACT scores for all New England colleges, we've found 19 schools where submitting a 30 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 30 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.
