ACT, SAT, or both?

I'm planning to apply early decision for GWU and I have already submitted one ACT score and am taking it again in September. I read somewhere that for early decision, you have to also take the SAT or subject tests. Is that true?

    I got into GW early decision and I only sent in my ACT score. Hope that helps!

    I'd say go both, but only focus on one at a time. Good scores on both give you stronger credentials going in. Whichever you take, either or both, make sure you take as many practice tests as you can(learn by doing) to acclimate and get used to the tests. Also, if you're looking for a tutoring service, Applerouth.com got my SAT's up to a 2060 from 1800's and an ACT of 30.
