Should I retake?

So I just took the ACT and got a 34C (34 E, 32 M, 34 R, 35 S). This was my first try . I am trying to get into top schools like UCLA, UCB, and USC, should I retake it and try for a 36?

    What does the rest of your application look like such as UW GPA, SAT subject test scores, EC’s, AP scores etc... ? Intended major? Where do you fall in the percentile range for each school you are applying? If you have the time and think you can improve, it could not hurt.

    WtH are you talking about. Listen om a cool guy and all. But you out her dropping 34s and hitting people wit a "should i retake". Some people are happy with double digits aight. The difference between a 34 and a 35 is literally 1-5 questions. SO they understand that the difference between your score and the TWO OTHER possibly higher scores is simple mistakes not indicative knowledge. So dont worry bout it. You are chilling. From the 32 score and got in UCLA gang.
