    Me too! I got a 7 on my essay even though I thought it was an exceptional piece of work. Oh well. I got a 590 on critical reading (really disapointed in myself), 650 on math (somewhat disapointed) and a 690 on writing (happy, but no one looks at writing anymore!).

    yes, i have taken the ACT. my scores were 29 math and science, 30 english and 31 reading- 30 composite. And I got an 11 on my essay by just writing a formulaic essay with nice college-level words and relevant examples. I was happy about that score, but what really dissapoints me is that i seriuosly made 5 mistakes on the math that I would have gotten right had i not panicked. In fact, on some of those problems, i contemplated changing my answers when i wasn't supposed to- resulting in me getting a pretty much guaranteed 700 or more. But i figured that my being able to resist breaking the code now will help me to keep it in the future.

    Flyboy- it looks like you're set with the composite of your SAT and ACTs.
