The table shows the middle 50% of scores, so if your scores fall within or above these ranges, you're on target for admission. Keep in mind that 25% of enrolled students have scores below those listed.

Also, remember that ACT scores are just one part of the application. The admissions officers in Wisconsin, especially at the top Wisconsin colleges will also want to see a strong academic record, a winning essay, meaningful extracurricular activities and good letters of recommendation.
