"Rounding" Composite ACT Scores
Does anyone have any insight to whether adcoms typically view ACT Composite scores simply as a whole number, or do they calculate the exact composite average and use this number?
Asking this another way, is a Composite of 33.50 (34M, 34E, 33R, 33S) viewed as less impressive than a Composite of 34.25 (34M, 34E, 34R, 35S)?
Of course, DD has a 33.50. Her reported 34 puts her solidly in the range for tippy top schools to which she is applying, but if it is viewed more as a 33 then we might decide that it is prudent for her to try one more time.
