The table above can help you figure out if your ACT scores are on target for admission to your top choice Oklahoma colleges. The table shows ACT scores for the middle 50% of matriculated students. If your scores fall within or above these ranges, you're in a good position for admission. If your scores are a little below the bottom number, don't give up -- 25% of enrolled students have scores below those listed.

If you have low SAT scores, be sure to keep the test in perspective. A strong academic record with challenging college preparatory classes will almost always carry more weight than standardized test scores. Also, some of the schools will look at non-numerical information and want to see a winning essay, meaningful extracurricular activities and good letters of recommendation.

Note that the ACT is far more popular than the SAT in Oklahoma, but all the schools will accept either exam.
