Submitting SATs over ACT- is it okay?
Hey everyone! Long time reader, but I just decided to start an account.
I'll be applying ED at Columbia for the Class of 2014. I am having an issue figuring out what to do about my standardized test scores.
I took the SAT I in June of this year and three SAT IIs in May. I was satisfied with my scores for all of the exams I took (except the third SAT subject test... but that's somewhat irrelevant to this thread) and therefore decided to forego any retakes.
However, I did decide to take the ACT just for kicks to see if it happened to be higher. Based on the conversion tables I have seen on the internet, I scored worse (statistically) on the ACT than on the SAT. Now, I am not saying that the ACT score was terrible; it is still within the 25-75 Percentile range for Columbia and all other schools I want to apply to. However, it is less strong.
The issue comes here: Columbia says that it wants all test dates to be submitted, but does this include all tests taken? For example, can I have the College Board send all of my SAT scores to Columbia and just forget about the ACT? Or am I required to submit the ACT also?
Thank you all for your help!
