    Essay still required?

    Hey, all. Was wondering if the SAT/ACT with essay portion was required for the class of 2026, even though CollegeBoard has decided to remove it? I can't find much information about whether it's required or not. Thanks!

    ACT Superscore

    Here is the deal: I got a 33 on my first ACT (35 English 35 Math 30 Reading 31 S/R) I just took the 10/24 ACT and feel I might have improved on English and Math to a point where I could have gotten a 36, which obviously would look better in terms of a superscore. However, for Reading and S/R I...

    Summer Seminar: Send both SAT and PSAT scores?

    I scored pretty bad on the PSAT and got a 1200 (620 Reading 580 Math) then I did a little bit of prep on math and scored a 1300 (640 reading 660 math) on my SAT. Should I still send both scores as I improved by 100 points or would it be best to leave the PSAT out of the equation. Side note: I...

    USMMA ACT Score Specifics

    Does USMMA only accept the most recent ACT score or can you cherry-pick your highest? At the moment my most recent ACT score is a 31. While I'm enthusiastic to test again in hopes of raising the score, the specifics of what USMMA accepts in regards to ACT scores is a bit of a mystery. Also...

    ACT or SAT

    Hi, I was wondering if the Air Force Academy either accepts the highest scores of either SAT or ACT. I got a low score on the ACT, but a high score on SAT which met the minimums. Will they take my SAT over the ACT?

    English vs Math ACT Scores

    Hi, I am very new to this forum so I hope my questions make sense: 1) I have read that West Point only looks at your English and Math scores for the ACT, is this true? 2) If I plan to have a more English/Humanities related major, is it ok if I have a lower Math ACT score that is compensated...
