If I understand correctly, you're just wanting an idea of how you stand competitively. I scored a 29 on the ACT twice. I definitely recommend taking it two times to try to improve the score. Nonetheless, I know people here who have gotten lower in the ACT (I think 26 or so is the lowest that I've personally heard of) and much higher (yes, we have 36s here). I do agree though, do your best and that's all you can ask for.
Took the ACT seven times to get my superscored ACT to a 29. My top scores for each section come from 4 different tests. Keep working at it and aim high!
You need to re-read the OP's question. The question was:Are you next going to ask us what's the lower CFA score someone got and received an appointment? How about the lowest GPA? or even the average GPA?
They question didn't have anything to do with "what is the lowest possible score". Rather, they were looking for a benchmark score. You know, the questions that students around the country try to obtain in order to see if they are competitive. Those questions spawn popular websites like collegedata.com to ascertain standardized score summaries. Furthermore, it was the OP's 1st post. I assumed nothing. They could be 15 years old or they could be a grandparent.
If you search, there are more posters here of 'what are my chances with these ACT scores' than 'I got an appointment with these ACT scores'. Most who applied this year (like my DS) are waiting for results but as of this writing there are 55 who have received USAFA appointments so hopefully some will share their scores. Do realize that the ACT score is only a portion of what the admissions board uses for selection.
What; when you study and take the ACT, your goal isn't to get a 36? If your goal in life isn't to do your best, and only to do what is needed to "Get by", then you probably need to reassess what you want in life.
Wowee! Usually I'm the grinch. This kid has probably taken the ACT and is nervous and wondering, hoping, his score is good enough.Are you next going to ask us what's the lower CFA score someone got and received an appointment? How about the lowest GPA? or even the average?
You are probably correct that I read into our OPs question what was on my own (small AND old, quite the combo) mind. I should pay more attention to the actual question asked.They question didn't have anything to do with "what is the lowest possible score". Rather, they were looking for a benchmark score
Actually, I said a 15 year old or a grandparent (not AND but or).You are probably correct that I read into our OPs question what was on my own (small AND old, quite the combo) mind. I should pay more attention to the actual question asked.
You and Maple will keep me on my toes.
