Hi, Did really poorly on my ACT. It was my first time taking it, and it was my last time. I didn't study at all and the timing was killing me. Guess what I got? A 19!!!!! I know people who took it their first time and got 30s. I'am thinking of giving up on college and just going to community college for two years. I don't know why I do bad on the SATs and I can't figure out why I can't do well on the ACT either. I know I am not getting into Baylor or TCU with that score. I took all AP classes and I got Bs and Cs in all of them. I am right outside the 25% of my class. I have pretty strong ECs but I'm not counting on getting in with those scores. Is there a chance? A glimmer of hope? Or am I dead meat? I have no clue why am bad at these tests. I truly believe I am ready for college, but these tests prove otherwise.
