To all the schools I applied to, I sent my SAT AND ACT scores. The catch is however, my ACT is low compared to my SAT score, relatively speaking.

SAT: 1340
ACT: 26

The reason I scored so low on the ACT was I had the flu but decided to take the test anyway. Will the schools look at my low ACT score and hold that against me?

It's really been bugging me lately...

Don't worry.

Thanks for your replies, but this is really worrying me. Won't they at least take a slight look at the low ACT score? :(

yeah but they really won't care that much, they'll look more at your SAT I cuz it's higher

They'll say "Looks like this kid just had some free time and took the ACT for fun." Then they'll throw your ACT away and keep the SAT score.
