By Katiya (Katiya) on Monday, July 05, 2004 - 12:37 pm: Edit

ACT - 34 (34, 35, 30, 35)
SAT - 730m, 700v; 660 chem, 760 iiC, 710 bio (plan to take writing and possibly others in fall)

So, should I send colleges SAT or ACT scores? For colleges that reccomend SAT IIs should I send or not? My ACT is better than my SAT I.. so I don't want them to look at that. Is my 30 on reading bad? Do colleges care about the subscores?

I'm hoping that by the fall I will have decided what colleges I'm applying to and possibly send only ACTs to all of them. Is this realistic? Do most colleges that I would be applying to require SAT IIs?

thanks for the help and advice

Most colleges accept the ACT, my S sent just his ACT scores and not SAT and got into 10/11 schools.His ACT was even a little lower then yours. Most of his colleges accepted the ACT instead of SAT II. I believe Rice was the only one that didn't do that. Good luck.

Are ACT scores necessary for most Ivy and elite colleges or is SAT suffice?
