    USNA only focuses on a couple of ACT scores. Can you remind me and enlighten others on which ones those are. And does the writing figure in at all?

    Also Does this apply to SAT also?

    Math and Verbal/English scores are the ones that USNA looks at and records. I don't think writing factors into the portal, but it may be required as part of the test format. USNA takes your highest score, which can be from either ACT or SAT, depending on which one is your strength.

    Please correct me if I'm wrong! This is what I heard at NASS and has proved correct on my application.

    Verbal being the same as English? So when my son was a candidate, I was unaware of this fact. He was VERY Low in reading, but thanks to an outstanding English teacher in 8th grade had excellent punctuation skills, I remember thinking at the time, how can a kid get 25 in reading and 33 in English, remember thinking how odd. I think the "structure" and organizational part of English appealed to him.

    Point being I worried about that 25, and we even had extra tutoring to help raise it, Ha Ha no Joy. Too ignorant to realize it was a NON-Issue.

    So Based on what USNA looked at anyway his scores were excellent. Not bragging just wanted some folks to know that some areas are more important than others. Don't waste time on Non-issues.

    Would still like to hear how the other academies assess the scores.
