    I just submitted my application to Texas A&M.
    I'm sending this set of scores (my 2nd try)

    English 33
    Math 25
    Reading 33
    Science 26
    Composite 29

    The first time I took it I got this:
    English 27
    Math 25
    Reading 31
    Science 31
    Composite 29

    Should I bother with sending the scores from my 1st time?

    I'm not entirely sure I would - the only difference in your favor was the reading and English, but you are already so far above the benchmark scores for those (the benchmarks for readiness are 18/English, 21/Reading) that I'm not sure it would make a significant difference one way or another, you know?

    Also, I'd hate to think your updated scores might add any additional processing time to your application. (Trust me, the waiting is a killer.) What do your parents and guidance counselor think?

    I will say this - if we had it to do over again and were in the same boat, if you haven't done Essay C, I'd probably put time and effort into adding that, rather than resending your new ACT scores.
