Third Time's the Charm?? ACT?

turney274turney274 4 replies1 discussionsRegistered User Posts: 5 New Member
Hey everyone!

I know this is super last minute since the deadline for the February ACT is tomorrow (oops), but I was wondering if it was worth it to take it a third time and send it in? I got a 30 each of my other two times (and they still super score to a 30). I signed up thinking it'd be a great choice to attempt a third one (maybe they'll go for determination?) but in talking with friends/college alums/guidance counselors they say it isn't necessary to do a third one.

Thoughts?? Thanks in advance!

    I think a 30 is OK for Tufts

    I agree. I don't think that even a four point difference (which would be unlikely) would make a difference to your overall application. Above a certain threshold (which appears to be 30 for the ACT) I think that the rest is gravy for these kind of schools.

    I would take it. Not that a 30 is bad at all, but if you think you could do better it could push you into Tuft's 25-75th percentiles (31-33 I believe). Just take tons of practice tests beforehand and I'm sure you could get another point or two, which can help.

    A 30 is not a strong score in the Tufts applicant pool. If you really think you can improve by a couple of points, it might be worth it.
