Will a 32 on the ACT put you in the running for a good scholarship at most colleges considering you have all the ec's and gpa?

er, not really.
I guess it could "put you in the running" but not much more than that unless you have something else to offer.
And it really depends on the school. I didn't get any from UChicago with a 35 ACT, but I did get a half tuition scholarship from Carnegie Mellon.

It totaly depends on where you apply and what else you have to offer. I had really low scores, even less than the average at most of my schools, but still was offered the top merit scholarship at several.

There are a lot of private colleges that are not in your top tier where a 32 ACT and a high GPA will guarantee you a scholarship, although most of those top out at half or 3/4 tuition with nothing for room and board. There are a lot of public universities where those stats would also get you a scholarship but those are very often only in the $1,000 to $3,000 per year range. A 32 with a high GPA may also get a partial tuition scholarship in some of your high tier private schools. However, be aware that many of your high tier schools (like the ivies)generally do not give merit scholarships.

For schools such as Emory or Wash U you would probably be at the bottom of the range to compete for a scholarship but they look at other things so it gets you into the picture at least. At a school such as Tulane, you would get possibly 18,000 but you'd have to check the site for specifics. At your state's honors program, depending on the state it could possibly get you free tuition maybe more if your grades are comparable. Good luck!

do a goggle search with ....ACT composite of 30 scholarship.....of course if your looking for the top 25 or tier one there might not be many, if you have your sights a shade lower there are a lot of oppurtunities

Going to a state school, i got $2000 scholarship, renewable, for a 31 on ACT. If I would have had a 32 or above I could have gotten $2500. An out of state university offered me $5000 per year for that score, but their tuition was also alot more.
I also have the good gpa and ecs.
I've seen quite a few scholarships from outside sources that recommend a 30 or above in order to be considered, so don't forget about those sources.
