Why do some people take one and not the other? How do they choose what to take?
I had never heard of the ACT until these boards (well until we started looking at College Apps which coincided with joining these discussion boards. What is the difference between these tests (other than they are administered by different companies)? Why do some high schools only send home information about the SATs?
A college that accepted our S suggested he take the ACT? How does one go about signing up for them? Is there a website like collegeboard.com?
