disadvantage in taking the act early in the school year?

<p>I've already taken the ACT once and am planning on retaking it in time to apply ealry decision to a school. I was wondering if taking it on September 11th would be bad because I'd still be getting used to schoolwork.</p>

<p>No it would be best. I don't know about you but my school starts like sept.4ish so the ACT would only be like 7 days away; preparing over the summer would be excellent as it would lead to the ACT right after school starts because there's less homework.</p>
