ACT testing data indicate that between 2013 and 2015, mean ACT scores were 20.3 English, 20.9 math, 21.3 reading, and 20.8 science, for an average composite score of 21.0. An ACT composite score of 25 is in the 79th percentile of all students taking the test, and approximately 5% of test-takers score 30 or above. Very few students receive the highest possible score of 36 (in 2014, only about 1,400 of 1.85 million test-takers achieved a perfect ACT score). The most selective universities usually admit applicants in the top 5% of scores nationally. The average ACT composite scores of students accepted to the University of Chicago and to Northwestern University were 33.5 and 32.5 respectively. With a mean ACT score of 34, the California Institute of Technology reported some of the best ACT performance in the country. Other institutions with high average ACT scores include Harvard (33.5), Vanderbilt (33), Columbia (32.5), the University of Pennsylvania (32), and Bowdoin College (31.5).

Manhattan Review's ACT clients are accepted to their preferred undergraduate programs at high rates.

Meet an Evanston ACT Tutor: Mauro P.

New York City native Mauro P. has been an ACT individual tutor and classroom instructor for Manhattan Review in his home town and in Evanston since 2009. He has more than 11 years of teaching experience overall, and was previously a high school English teacher on Long Island. He now teaches ACT prep exclusively, and his teaching is so popular that he has had to create a waiting list.

Mauro's impressive academic credentials include a bachelor's degree in education from the University of Pennsylvania and a master's degree in education from New York University. "I try to always project confidence and success to my students," he says. "One of the most important aspects of my job is to inspire my students to work hard and do their best, and I believe in leading by example."
