I plan to apply to Georgetown in the fall (I am a rising senior). Since they do not participate in score choice, they require that I send all my scores. I have a few questions on the specifics of what that means though. For example, I took the SAT way too often and my scores did not improve an awful lot. I ended up getting a 1470 the last two times (and I took it a whopping five times!) So, I decided to try out the ACT and scored a 34 Composite first time around. I will be using my ACT for all other schools. If I only submit ACT to Georgetown, do they also require the scores of all five of my SATs?
Also, back in sophomore year, I took a World History Subject Test without taking the class first just because I am a history nerd and wanted to see what the questions were like. At the time, I had 0 idea about this Gtown policy. As expected, I failed with a 460 (i think)! It was 7th percentile.... Also, I did not do too hot on the Chemistry (610) and Spanish (620) Subjects this past June. I do have two good scores in USH and Bio that I plan to submit, and I hope to score 700 plus on literature next August.
So, my question is? Do I have to submit more than 3 subjects even if I took one as a joke? And do I have to submit my five SAT scores that are sub par when I have a good ACT score that I am choosing to show to all my colleges? Thanks so much for the help everyone.
