Western Colleges for a 19 on the ACT

What Western colleges can I apply to with an ACT score of 19?

With a 19 on the ACT, these Western colleges are a good match for your score

Looking at the most recent published freshman class ACT scores for all Western colleges, we've found 69 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.

Is a 19 a good ACT score?

A score of 19 is a little worse than average. It places you in the bottom 44th percentile nationally out of the 2 million test takers of the ACT entrance exam. The score indicates you've done a slightly below average job answering the questions on the English, Math, Reading and Science sections of the test. 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.

What is the SAT equivalent to a 19 ACT score?

For comparison purposes, a 19 on the ACT converts to a 1010 on the SAT based on the College Board / ACT concordance. Not all colleges report both SAT and ACT score admission data so you should check our comparable listings for both standardized tests to find academically similar schools.
