    Hi,

    Can I update my AFROTC scores? I scored a 31 in the ACT for september, but the score I have online is my SAT from May where I scored an 1890. I tried to update it yesterday, but the "add test score" section is greyed out for some reason. I already had my interview last week and was alerted yesterday I was not a winner (the reason I am trying to update my score now). I e-mailed the support email about this issue to which they replied

    Lahey,
    We do not take the writing portion like the website says so unless you had a higher equivalency of what a 31 ACT composite is you cannot submit it.

    What does this mean? Yes or No?

    It sounds like you would have needed to score above 1400 on the SAT without considering the writing portion. Add your math and reading sections together and compare them to the ACT with the above link.

    In short what they are saying is right now you would need a 32 from a conversion perspective to add a new score because point wise you were at the equivalent already.

    I am also not sure if you can update your scores after you have been boarded. The reason I say that is because the way your post reads (greyed out) that seems to me they (HQ) have locked it now since you were boarded. I know that you can update it prior to boarding, but just not sure if that is true after you are boarded.

    Also, know that just because they did not award you a scholarship this time around, sometimes it is because you are on the cusp and they want to see a larger pool size before awarding a scholarship.
