    I had never taken the ACT test so I did that in early December. I would like to report the scores to the USNA. I can send them via the USNA ACT code, but should I notify anyone so that it is added to my record for current consideration? I will notify my B & G officer.

    Thanks!

    you could save yourself by having your scores sent directly to USNA.

    '64s right. Your report will not be official, and thus not recorded, and thus of no real value. None would likely offer any opinion beyond ...thanks, sounds good, make sure you have the scores reported by ACT.

    My son never sent his SAT scores to USNA, but they had them. His Blue and Gold officer had them when he came to our house for the interview in late-November. Also, when I stopped at the Mathematics booth in Dahlgren Hall on I-Day, they knew what his SAT math score was. His high school lists all standardized test scores on the transcript, so maybe that is how they had them.

    Confusion

    In my OP I stated that I would use the USNA ACT code, and that meant sending them officially from ACT to the USNA (and paying the $$ to do so). My question is should I alert someone (and who) that they are coming, since they are arriving after my application, etc. I may not need to notify anyone, as this may be common.
    Sorry for the confusion. Thanks.

    @mihoser You can decide to send your ACT scores to your high school after you review the scores. Unless you check that you want them sent, they do not automatically send them (that I am aware of). I requested that they be sent to my high school.

    No you do not need to tell anyone that they are coming. They will know what to do with them. If they do not appear for a while I would call admissions and ask but generally they are quick about such things.

    ACT scores for my DS were taking a long time to post so we called ACT to check on it and were told that USNA has the ACT scores sent to them twice a month in a CD format. So if you requested the scores to be sent, they will definitely receive them. Scores were just sent on 12/27.

    Yes. If your ACT scores are better, then by all means let your Blue and Gold officer know via an email. (as well as USNA via the electronic way).

    Good luck. DS is halfway through the Plebe year and he is very happy. It is hard but he was ready.
