What would be considered a good enough ACT score for Wharton? Is a 33 for a Hispanic, first generation male good enough?

    33 is probably good enough for anyone to successfully clear the "test score" hurdle at any school, except maybe Caltech.

    34-36 is better, but we see so many perfect-stat kids being rejected that we can assume that while GPA and test score are parts of the puzzle -- moreso GPA at most schools -- selective private schools (and some publics) also consider things like ECs/awards, essay quality, recommendations, and interviews where applicable. 4.0/36 sometimes fails to get in, while 3.85/33 sometimes does get in.

    That should be fine for test score filters, but obviously scores alone don't get you in.
