By Gigglz (Gigglz) on Friday, October 24, 2003 - 05:16 pm: Edit

okay guys this isnt the REAL gigglz [the girl who regularly uses this], i'm her friend janet, but yeah she's letting me use this for a question. there's an ACT testing going on tommorrow morning and i'm NOT registered, but i was thinking of paying extra and doing a walk-in [i already have the packet and everything, and lots of peeps do this]. i got a 27 on my last ACT, and i think it's good enough to get into most of my schools, and i was just thinking of retaking it tommorrow to try for a 28 or something.
But there's also a really big party at Mizzou tonight that my senior friends from last year invited me to [Mizzou is about 2 hrs from where i live, so i'd be staying overnight and coming back tommorrow morning, meaning I wouldn't be able to take ACTs], and it would be awesome to see them again since i haven't in a long time, and i heard its gonna be yeah..this wont come around often. I also have one more chance at the ACT if i feel like it, in the December testing [i believe Dec 13?]
so yah, i'm not technically registered for ACT tommorrow, so should i walk in and pay like $50+ to try and get an extra point, or travel to Mizzou and party hardy? [which sounds SO much fun, i havent let loose in awhile!]. Does one point on the ACT really make that much of a difference?
PARTY OR ACT? u guys decidE!!! AND FAST! it's 4:14PM and i've got to decide before 6:00PM!!!

Good choice. You could always have another party. But ACTs decide (sort of) the rest of your life.

"ACTs decide (sort of) the rest of your life."

I know most people here are in their own little hyper-anxious college-striving overachieving world, but reality check please.

This message is late, but I would have gone to the party. It didn't sound like you were mentally ready for the ACTs anyway, and taking it in December would have given you more time to prepare and would have saved you money.

Is a 30 on the ACT good at all?

It doesnt seem like a good score to me (percentage-wise), but it said I was in the top 97 percentile. Do people get 36's often?

By Gigglz (Gigglz) on Sunday, October 26, 2003 - 11:09 am: Edit

there's only like one kid in my graduating class who got a 36.
i took the ACTs, and i actually think that i did alot better. everything seemed easier for me. I'll update you guys with my scores when they come in 2 weeks! [i got a 27 last time, and THAT testing i TOTALLY was not mentally prepared for. hehe, but i have a goood feeling bout this testing.]
K, so look for an upcoming post in 2 weeks entitled, "PARTY OR ACTs?!? PART 2!"
