    Son took his final sat/act for the year. He sent in his act scores already. His final sat scores came. Given the act scores should he bother sending in the SAT scores?

    ACT Scores:
    E 34
    M 34
    R 31
    S 30


    SAT Scores:
    Critical Reading: 630
    Math: 760
    Writing: 710

    (all scores are superscores)






    Im guessing not to send in those sat scores because of the poor Critical Reading score.

    Poor is relative :thumb:

    According to this (.pdf), it looks like the 630 is competitive. Still it looks like the ACT scores are better.

    It won't matter. WP will just use the best scores, which in this case will almost certainly be the ACT. Having the SAT scores there will not be a negative though, but if you need to pay $10 to send them there would be no reason to.

    Im going with Maciemi on this-We have spent a fortune on plane tix all over the country/registration fees/emergency spending money all for the summer: SLS, NASS, S.A.M.E (half registration only, and they pay plane ticket) and our state makes you pay for Boys state + bus ride there. None of it is drivable for us coming from the midwest.

    To send his SAT scores I would have to send three sets to multiple schools (I already sent four sets of act scores to multiple schools.

    Added to the fact that DS wont be able to work while he is at all of these...well it just adds up.

    I dont want to be penny wise pound foolish though, which is why I asked this question.


    (wow-i just sounded like a huge whiner-sorry!)
