    Does USNA still put the same weight on SAT/ACT scores for re-applicants as they do for high school applicants or do they mainly focus on how well you do in college? Last year, I applied with a 590V/33 English and a 650M/28 Math.

    The general recommendation is for reapplicants who have not scored high on their standardized tests to retake. "High" is obviously subjective, but unless you are at least 650/700, there is clearly room for improvement. Of course, one can improve even on those scores but at some point the marginal benefit decreases.

    As between the two, it is more important that you earn As in the plebe courses.

    If you are uncertain about your particular case, contact your RD.

    I've talked to an admissions staff at summer seminar today, and he said that they look at college grades more, but they still look at act and sat score so I would maybe retake it to see if the score would be higher
