3 SAT scores or 1 ACT score?

prospect8prospect8 42 replies9 threads Junior Member
Hi, I'm applying to Yale RD which requires all test scores to be sent.

Should i send 3 sat scores that are:
2010 (640CR+730M)
2120 (700CR+700M)
2230 (700CR+780M)
and Two SATiis,
800 math 2 and 750 chemistry

or an ACT score that is
33

Also, I may take the ACT again on dec 11. Should i wait and see if my score goes higher before deciding to send anything? Yale only requires ACT or SAT + subject tests.
Thank you

    A 33 roughly equals a 2210 according to ACT's official concordance chart.

    The choice is yours, however.

    I'd send all of your test results. You have a very solid ACT score but your subject tests scores are also very good (nice job on the math level 2). Send them all. Sending all your scores will not hurt you as admissions will look at your best scores. I really don't think it matters what your new ACT score is. Yale wants all the test scores so send them all. Good luck!

    33 is more around a 2190, so your SAT is better.

    Thanks everyone for you help. I was only hesitant because I have 3 sat scores and my third score was the best compared to a one time act score which is pretty close (in terms of conversion)

    any other suggestions would be more than welcome!

    Can the OP just send his ACT and then just the subject tests? I hear colleges can't tell if students use score choice or if they send all scores.
