    I keep hearing the average is 27-31. Is this true? Thanks!

    Here is the breakdown from the Academy Admissions website:

    ACT : Interquartile Range (Mid 50%) : Mean

    English : 28-33 : 30

    Reading : 28-33 : 30

    Mathematics : 28-33 : 30

    Scientific Reasoning : 27-32 : 29

    Hope this helps!

    Does mid 50% range mean that there's some kids that get 25s 26s etc on sections and get in?

    Yes, the interquartile range is the 25th percentile to the 75th percentile. Those on the lower end of the range and below the middle 50% are usually recruited athletes or special circumstances.
