    I know USMA has stated they want a writing score but my question is does every test need to include writing? Basically DS took the ACT w/ writing in Dec, does he need to take it again? Will they take the scores without it as long as he has at least one with it?

    I believe they take your highest ACT scores out of all the chances you've tried so that should be okay. I only took it once so I may be wrong. Can anyone verify this?

    any score will get you into the portal, can alway come beck and update it with better. But they won't consider your ACT scores without it. Army does their App in tiers, so you cant get to level 2 till you pass their level 1 requirements

    But one writing score is all he needs? Then after that he can take it without?

    Yes, you only need one passing writing score. I believe the minimum is 7 for the ACT.

    However, if you're going to sit for the ACT again, why skip the writing. It can't hurt you and may help. USMA super scores and does use the combined English/Writing score. Without the writing portion, you won't have a chance to improve the combined English/Writing score.
