College of the Day: Mercy College

Identified as a College of Distinction, Mercy College is located in a northern New York City suburb. There is a bit of a broad range of admitted test scores and GPA's, which seem to focus on ACT's between 18 and 24 and GPA between 2.8 and 3.5. Because of Mercy's commitment to giving students an opportunity, its multiple campuses around New York, and its private nondenominational status, it is similar to local colleges like York College and Stevenson University.
