    I have been waitlisted for the class of 2020 right now and was wondering if I should take the SAT/ACT'S again. What would you advise?

    ACT:

    English: 26
    Math: 27
    Reading: 33
    Science: 29
    Combined English/Writing: 26

    SAT:
    Critical Reading: 580
    Math: 610

    Thank you!

    The fact that you're asking the question means you already know the answer. The main question is: are you doing everything you can to improve your standing? Let that be your guide.

    Sorry -- my mistake -- but I bet the stats are similar. Talk to your admissions POC. Best wishes and good luck.

    Yes I would take it again ASAP, Its funny though, you have the exact same ACT scores as me, except I got a 33 in the Math and a 27 in the Reading. That is unfortunate for you though:confused2: because I suspect they grant more weight to the Math section than they do for Reading.

    Like someone said above; What are some of your credentials, GPA if you don't mind?

    Your SAT reading score is not bad but since Coast Guard considers math portion more than Reading your SAT score is not as competitive as you want it to be. I hope you will get admitted.
