Colleges admissions offices evaluate each student individually based on:
- SAT or ACT scores
- GPA/Class Rank
- Strength of Curriculum (courses chosen, including AP classes)
- Extracurricular activities, including leadership roles
- Community service
- Others, including essays, teacher recommendations and achievements/awards
Each column lists the ACT score for the 25-75% of accepted students in 2015 admissions process. Keep in mind that students not automatically accepted into UT or A&M with the top 10% rule will need higher test scores to compensate.
