Does it look bad if you take a standardized test 4-5 times? I'm not much of an ACT person so I've done much better on the SAT. The reason why i take the ACT is so that i have a backup in case my SAT scores are low, but i've consistently been scoring low on the ACT. Also I take it because my school gives me fee waivers for them. I've taken the ACT about 3 times already and I've gotten between 25-27 composite. I'm planning to take it one last time this December, and I am worried the academy may look at it badly that I've taken it so many times, and that I've recieved such low scores.
