Can someone remind me what ACT a kid needs to get into an Ivy League school? What score is needed if a RHP throwing 90? I like to think of my kid as HA, but my impression was that there was a difference between standard HA and Ivy. Might be only 2-3 points on the ACT, but those points move you from the low 90th percentile into the 99th.
Here are a few links on the AI (Academic Index) used by IVies. The first is a little outdated (as my HS guidance counselor where I work says there are no more SAT subject tests. But it still shows how HYP are the three Ivies with the highest thresholds of the 8. The second article actually has an AI calculator, so you can see where you land based on SAT/ACT and GPA. I also remember when my son calculated his AI SEVERAL years ago, class rank (and out of how many) was another data point that went into AI.
