    I just recieved my ACT scores from Oct:

    composite: 32
    engligh: 29
    math: 33
    reading: 33
    science: 35
    writing: isn't graded yet

    My highest SAT scores are :

    math: 800
    reading: 580
    writing: 650

    This was the first time I took the ACTs and to my surprise I don't think I did that bad.

    I looked online for some sort of scale to compare them, but almost everyone I found was different. I know USAFA takes the best of either ACT or SAT but not combined super scores. Do you think they will take the SAT with the perfect math and ok reading or the ACT that is pretty good across the board?

    I took the SATs a few weeks ago to try to raise my reading score so hopefully in a few weeks it improved.

    Where do I stand in regards to these two sets of scores.

    As always thanks for your help!

    PS-Yes, I know I posted this over in CC for all of you who do both like me. However I'm starting to see more people over on SA forums, so I thought I'd try here too!

    well that was easy. thank you.

    However, will the academy choose which set of scores (ACT or SAT) will help my application the most? My ACT composite is higher than my SAT M+CR, but I think that 800 on math stands out.

    Your ACT scores look really good. That's about what I had, only your's is a little higher. I received a LOA, too, so you should be fine.

    You're welcome.

    Glad that helps you a bit. Don't know about your other question though ...
