Nebraska offers a wide range of options for higher education -- public and private, religious and secular, comprehensive and specialized, large and small. Admissions standards range from schools with open admissions to those that are relatively selective. The table below can help you figure out if your ACT scores are on target for admission to your top choice Nebraska 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, keep in mind that 25% of enrolled students have scores below those listed.
Be sure to keep the ACT in perspective. A strong academic record typically carries more weight than standardized test scores. Also, some of the more selective schools on the list will look at non-numerical information and want to see a strong essay, meaningful extracurricular activities and good letters of recommendation.
Note that the ACT is far more popular than the SAT in Nebraska, but all the schools will accept either exam.
