Before everyone gets too riled up, this is a legit question. Bear with me. So, I got a 36 composite on the ACT, but I received a 7 on the essay portion of the test. Does anyone have any suggestions for what I should do? I don't want something like this holding me back, especially since I do not think I am a bad writer... I guess my best excuse is that I ran out of time, terrible at time management I guess. Reposted from the Yale board.
