So I took the ACT in June and received a composite score of 35 (33 English, 35 Math, 35 Reading, 35 Science). But I received only an 8 on the writing portion, giving me a combined English/Writing score of 30. As I am hoping to apply to top universities including Harvard, Stanford, and Yale, I really would like my writing score to be a bit higher.
Anyways, is it worth it for me to retake the ACT with the sole purpose of raising my writing score? I see no chance of raising my composite.
