How important is the essay portion of the ACT? How much would a low combined english/essay score hurt a high composite score? Whenever people put chances threads up on CC, they never seem to mention their essay score and only put their 4 section scores, and repliers never ask for the essay score. How much of an effect does the combined english/essay score have in the eyes of college admission officers? I'm asking this because I took the no writing version of the test and did well, but timed essays are definitely my weakness when it comes to standardized tests..
