    I would not submit ACT. You could go either way with SAT. Do you know if you need to submit standardized test scores in order to be considered for merit aid? That would be my decision maker for sending the SAT score. @typicalmom

    I would not submit. The general rule I have heard from admissions officers is that is a student is below the average in terms of standardized testing is then it is best to apply test optional. Both of your son's scores are below the 25th percentile so I would go test optional.
