I know some of the academies will scrutinize math scores far more than English scores. Is this true for the Coast Guard as well? My English ACT is strong at 35 but my math puts me at about average at 29. I'm retaking it twice before the end of the year and will hopefully be able to bring it up, although being a college applicant, I focus a lot more time on my classes as I know my first semester transcript will be closely examined. I'm also from a well represented area so from what I understand I need to submit a packet that's higher than the average that's generally accepted. What I wonder is how much I should be concerned with regards to the ACT. Does a 29 in math significantly hurt me?
