I remember reading in multiple spots that USMA requires the writing portion be taken alongside the ACT. Does this mean that I need to have taken the ACT and the writing at least once, or does the score I submit to them have to include the writing as well? Maybe this will be less confusing: In seventh grade I got a 22 on the ACT (no writing). Last year I took the ACT with writing and got a 29. I took it again last month without writing and got a 33. So according to this would USMA only count the 29 that I got last year? I'm taking it again in February (my math score was not what I wanted it to be). Problem is, I may do worse on this ACT, especially if I add the writing. I hope all that made sense.
