What is the 25%-75% ACT scores for Harvard?

If you choose to send in only your ACT test score do colleges still want to see your SAT subject tests scores?

    Subject Test requirements vary by school. Most top universities/colleges recommend or require sending in 2 SAT Subject Tests.

    The 08-09 Common Data for Harvard has the ACT range as 31-35.

    Harvard requires 2 SAT Subject Tests, along with either the ACT or the SAT Reasoning Test.

    D's ACT score was definitely the score Harvard used when considering her, which was a 35. Along the way, I asked CC forums the value of her score (her first ACT was a 33). The response given to me was the value of an ACT score depended a lot on the geographical location of the applicant and that a 35 in Massachusetts had a lot less value than a 35 from some other state (I am not going to try an pick out a state). I do not know the veracity of this statement, but it is interesting.
