    Just sent in updated ACT scores to USNA. The June test results (6th time was charm :)) were such that they were both best sitting scores and superscore with the exception of the writing portion. Do I even need to bother to send in the better writing scores from a previous test? Does USNA look at those?

    I'm fairly sure that the USNA couldn't care less about your writing section. They only look at English (or whatever ACT calls it) and math.
    The reason for that is because the writing section is scored very subjectively; a old grandma in Tennessee can give you a very different grade than a teacher in North Dakota for the same essay.
    The USNA uses your personal statement as a method to judge your writing capabilities. But they are more interested in the material in it than if you are a good writer.
