    Hello, I am just curious as to whether USMA will look at SAT subject tests. I know they are not required, but, though my school is academically competitive, it does not rank students so I want to do everything possible to validate my grades. I am only a sophomore at the moment and am probably going to be taking at least one subject test soon. What about congressmen and senators? Does anyone know if they will review SAT Subject test scores during the nomination application process? It's a long way off, but I want to be as prepared as possible so any info anyone could provide would be fantastic!

    In my opinion, your time would be better spent studying for the SAT/ACT. They carry a lot of weight with admissions while SAT IIs carry much, much less weight. My 2 cents.

    Many competitive schools require SAT IIs. If your plan B requires them and you do well...I would think it would be beneficial to include them.

    I personally submitted them on my "extra information" resume, which MAJ Ghazal of the Northeast Region recommended that I send in. The scores were never posted on my portal and I believe their weight was minimal, although I honestly have no clue. However, if you are comfortable with the SAT/ACT then it would be great to take SAT IIs for civilian colleges. Best of luck!

    I can't say whether or not they hold weight for USMA, but some selective civilian schools require a certain number of SAT IIs for admission. So in order to even apply to certain plan B's, you need to take them. Look at individual schools' requirements.
