My junior year I took the ACT, and got a 21 English, with an 8 in writing (I know, not up to USMA standards). however, I practiced my English and pulled it up to a 26 (miracle). But, when I got the 26, I didn't take the writing, as I thought an 8 should suffice. Now I'm stuck in a bad situation, as my eng+wri is only a 21... My question is will the admissions officers see this 21 combined, and automatically disregard me, or will they see that I have a 26 and 8 on separate occasions and realize that I did indeed improve and that my 21 is really a bad indication of my current eng/writing skills.... I'm a senior in hs right now, so I can't take it again. My comp is a 28, with good EC's and a Good CFA, I'm just really starting to stress, as I'm sure everyone applying for the class of 2018 is. Thanks.
