    I have taken the act twice and superscored have
    English 34
    Math 33
    Science 30
    Reading 25
    English/writing 34
    Composite 31

    As you can see the Reading will keep me out of the service academies

    I just received my PSAT scores
    Math 77
    writing 67
    reading 54
    Total 198


    The PSAT --> Sat concordance would be
    Math 770
    writing 670
    reading 540
    Total 1980

    I am on "your application has not yet been processed by USAFA"

    Is there any benefit to changing my USAFA SS application to add these scores? Or should I leave bad-enough alone?

    Depending on what the rest of your resume looks like, the 25 alone in reading, especially with how high your other scores are, especially math, will not necc. keep you out of the service academies! (My son is a white male, not a recruited athlete, and his highest reading ACT was 25, he got into both USAFA and USNA summer seminars, and he is now a Youngster at USNA)

    That said, I would include PSAT scores on your SS app as well, as they will look at all your scores. You have plenty of time to boost your reading score before the actual applications to attend a service academy are required.

    Reading scores usna

    I dont think USNA looks at your reading score -so for that particular academy you need not worry about the 25. The 25 may be an issue for USAFA and USMA though.

    Yes, USNA doesn't. I also made a25 on reading but 35 and 33 on the sections that count :)

    reading act

    It is interesting that you can get an LOA to USNA with a Reading score of 25, but be denied admission from USMA based on that score.
