ACT Scores for Ivy League Schools


Ivy League ACT Scores

In this episode of TuesdACT, I take a look at ACT scores and the prestigious Ivy League.

Here are some the questions I answer:

    1. What are the average ACT scores of admitted students at each member of the Ivy League? (spoiler alert: they are below as well)

    2. What are the average ACT Writing scores of admitted students at each member of the Ivy League? (teaser: the answer may surprise you)

    3. Do these traditionally SAT-focused schools really think ACT scores are just as good? (watch to find out!)
