Also remember that ACT scores are just one part of the application. The admissions officers at Rhode Island's more selective colleges will want to see a strong academic record, a winning essay, meaningful extracurricular activities and good letters of recommendation. Factors such as legacy status and demonstrated interest can also make a difference.
Note that the SAT is much more popular in Rhode Island than the ACT, even though both exams are accepted at nearly all colleges in the country. Because of the low number of ACT scores reported in Rhode Island, however, some colleges do not provide ACT data. To get a sense of how your ACT scores measure up to SAT scores, use this SAT-ACT conversion table.
