You'll notice that quite a few schools don't report ACT scores. This is because the SAT is much more popular than the ACT in Connecticut. Also, keep in mind that standardized test scores are just one part of the application. The admissions officers in Connecticut, especially at the top Connecticut colleges, will also want to see a strong academic record, a winning essay, meaningful extracurricular activities and good letters of recommendation.

Note that 25% of enrolled students have scores below those listed. So, if your scores are lower than the ranges here, don't worry! You still have a chance of being admitted, provided the remainder of your application is strong. In some cases, students with high scores, but a weak application, are not admitted; some students with lower grades, but an otherwise strong application, are admitted. Since many of these schools are test-optional, it's important to make sure that the rest of your application is strong.
