    sorry for the incomplete address earlier. I am in 100%. 20/20 is a great idea. I have some Reuters information. I'll email tomorrow.

    Maybe your D should move to the SAT if the ACT corporation will never let her score higher than 25. I am sure BYU will understand, as you really need a 28 to be competitive for BYU nowadays. Good luck. This sounds awful! Maybe have your bishop send a letter to BYU and BYU I explaining the situation.

    It seems like you may need to start a social media campaign to spread the word. After reading what has happened to a few of you and the recent debate in (Ohio??), I dont think we will even take it. What a shame that they can get away with that type of accusation.

    Sorry, I was not aware of this policy. Will do! Thank you

    Update - we are still waiting for ACT to respond to the latest review. Taking longer than the last time. Still plan to fight this til the end. Pass the word on to all who have been effected by this. The more exposure the better! Anyone wanting my contact/email info let me know. I will message you.

    Devastating. My son took a great online review course, spent the time to prepare, and we witnessed his results on multiple practice exams. ACT disrupted his senior year by rejecting his score. His confidence has been crushed. Their statistical arguments for rejecting are flawed.

    It certainly appears they target mud-year seniors. We are talking it to arbitration. My daughters confidence was also crushed, but now we are, turning this into a lesson on fighting for what's right!

    This is absolutely awful and crazy. I have never heard of this where we live. Is this happening in certain states or areas?

    This happened to a very close friend, and it was a horrible experience. For this very reason, my children will stick to the SAT.

    I have heard from people all over. Everyone needs to report to Reuters, US Secretary of Education, Fair Testing and go to arbitration. Arditration only costs $200 for the student Anna over $2000 for ACT. if more people arbitrate then it will cost them.

    Any updates?
  • ktrrightsktrrights Registered User Posts: 17 New Member
    Update - we received our paperwork and instructions to pay for the arbitration. I understand this is a lengthy process so bare with me on updates. I will keep everything posted. Thank you for keeping in touch!

    Not sure where the BYU came from. My daughter is not going to BYU. Understand that this is not about her getting into a school. She is already in the fall semester at your university. This is about fighting for what is right and not allowing ACT to get away with this and continue this with future students. They bully these seniors at the most vulnerable time, right at graduation, knowing these students will not fight. For us the finances were not an issue but for others, scholarships are being lost and acceptance is being denied. It is not right. Hope this helps the understanding. Thanks for your thoughts!

    This is happening all over but I do believe they are targeting certain students and areas. They refused information when I asked about specifics on area, sex, origin and ethnics. Understand that this is not about her getting into a school. She is already in the fall semester at your university. This is about fighting for what is right and not allowing ACT to get away with this and continue this with future students.
