Hey Guys! I just checked my ACT score with the essay score. I got a 35 composite with a 9 on the essay. I'm considering on applying to top ivy league schools with my score. I'm extremely happy with my composite score, but I'm worried that my essay score is too low. What do you guys think? How influential is the essay score in the college admissions process? Should I consider a retake (i can definitely improve my essay score but I'm worried that my composite will be lower)? Thank you!
