    I received my results from last months ACT, I am somewhat disappointed at the result but did manage to raise my math score a point. So my burning question is: Is it worth reporting my new scores (C-29, E-28, M-28, R-31, S-30) in addition to my already reported scores (C-30, E-28, M-27, R-29, S-35)?
    I know AFROTC doesn't superstore so should I go with the lower composite and higher math or higher composite and lower math?

    A tad off topic, does anyone know the ACT score equivalent chart for NROTC?

    Thanks,

    I would double check with AFROTCHQ and see if they use the actual Composite, or only the Math and English. If so you are better off with your second set.

    I am also almost 100% positive that you can continue to take it, and you will want to for later down the road regardless if you get a scholarship or not. Two reasons why both tied to SFT:

    1. SFT selection will use either the SAT/ACT score or AFOQT. AFOQT is closer to the ACT test, more graphs, science aspects. This will help you for the AFOQT if you decide to take it. AFOQT is not mandated anymore for C100's, and optional for 200's.

    2. Your composite is in the middle of the road, and when you look at the breakdown for the WCS, that portion is very high statistically, You want to give yourself some wiggle room for academics in college.
    ~~ Mean avg: 3.1 cgpa for tech, 3.3-3.4 for non-tech is not as easy as one may think when it comes to college, especially 1st semester fall.

    Those two together, and there is very little wiggle room left to get an SFT/EA slot.

    That's the thing for AFROTC, and I am pretty sure A/NROTC too, you need to think ahead and how this will impact you later on.

    Look at it from the perspective of constructing a home. The stronger the foundation you have laid, the more options you will have building on the next level. You are at the foundation level right now.
