    For those of you who took it (after all its our last chance before admissions decisions) how do you think you did?

    What was easier/harder?

    Best subsection/worst?

    I will answer how it felt for me.

    The reading first passage (prose fiction) was awful and confusing with all the slang terms and such that it used.

    The rest felt fairly easy, but I have said that before and made a low score so.

    DS took ACT this morning. Trying his best to improve his WCS. He concentrated on sections that he needed to improve on. I believe he achieved his goal but he was thrown off by the writing prompt.

    What was the writing prompt this time? I made an 11/12 on my last test luckily by working the rubric.

    To get the highest score possible on writing.

    Paragraph 1: strong thesis, declare something example."high schoolers need the self confidence from public speaking classes, anything else would be doing an injustice to our future, the future of America"

    P2. Point 1 give example

    P3. Point 2 give real life story/connection/ made up statistic

    P.4. Point 3 envision what it would be like if implemented. Outline benefits

    P5. Counter argument- reference downsides and say why they don't matter.

    P6: conclusion

    I took it yesterday, but I also was planning on taking it (multiple choice only) on Febuary 7th. Is that too close to the deadline for USMA to get the scores? I was under the impression that Febuary was the final date to take it for USMA.

    My RC said they won't get it in time if I take it in February so this was the last one I'm guessing. I guess you could try to take it then, but after February they stop taking new info I believe.

    Do you know if he meant if you took writing with it? That definitly won't get there in time, but MC only should (at least I think it will).

    It would be close, sometimes it takes 3+ weeks so it's worth a try, after all it can't hurt.
    I have taken the test 7 times and it usually comes in for personal use in 2-3 weeks, and then gets sent out in about 3+ so I'm guessing he's right.
