What Southern colleges can I apply to with an ACT score of 33?

Looking at the most recent published freshman class ACT scores for all Southern colleges, we've found 18 schools where submitting a 33 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 33 ACT score.
