    How does this look for a USCGA application?
    33 math ACT
    25 English ACT
    10 out of 12 on optional writing ACT ~apparently these are the only ones the USCGA looks at so I guess that's all that matters?

    Im an EMT and am a weekly volunteer at the rescue squad

    4.1 GPA/ UW GPA is 4.0
    150hrs volunteering not including rescue squad volunteering
    top 10% of class
    active in many clubs as well as 2 varsity sports
    AP psychology
    AP physics
    AP english 11
    AP english 12
    AP govt
    AP Biology
    AP calculus
    AP Chem
    AP developmental psych

    I can definitely get my act English up to a 28 or so...
    Any criticism would be appreciated?

    We only know you won't get in if you don't apply.

    Compared to the class profile I feel like I'm just as qualified. Does the admissions really only look at the English and math, or do they look at the composite also? My composite is low as I only studied for what I believed they looked at. My composite is 25?!?!?!

    Haha I like that. So does a low composite score hurt your profile if they only look at the English and math?

    I would take it again and try to improve the composite, the stress in the application process is an all around candidate so it would only make sense to bring well rounded test scores as well.
