okay, ive noticed something kind of weird. for a lot of the colleges that i am looking at, I look at the middle 50% of the score ranges for the SAT and the ACT. personally, my SAT score is higher than my ACT score (but not by a lot) I have found that my ACT score puts me higher in the 50% range than my SAT score does. For example:
at UChicago, the range for the SAT is 1380-1500 and the range for the ACT is 28-32.
I have a 1390 and a 30 (SAT and ACT, respectively)
i guess my question is why is my theoretically lower ACT score higher in the 50% range than my SAT score is??
