Realize that ACT scores are just one part of the application. The admissions officers in Florida will also want to see a strong academic record, a winning essay, meaningful extracurricular activities and good letters of recommendation. Colleges with holistic admissions will take many factors into account, so don't worry if your scores are lower than the ranges here. Remember that 25% of enrolled students had scores lower than these ranges. And, some students with higher scores were not admitted if the rest of their application was weak.

Click on the "see graph" links in the right column to get a visual sense of how other applicants fared at each school. Some applicants with higher test scores were rejected or waitlisted, while others with lower scores were accepted. Since admissions offices look at all parts of the application, a student with lower scores but an otherwise strong application could be accepted, over someone who tests well but has a lack-luster application.

To learn more about each school, just click on their names in the chart above. These profiles include helpful information for prospective students about admissions, enrollment, financial aid, majors, graduation rates, athletics, and more.
