Early decision: ACT retaking

so I've taken the ACT twice already, got a 28 the first time, and took it again today, have absolutely no clue what I got. I'm worried, however, that it won't be good enough. I'm definitely applying early decision at Northwestern, and the deadline is November 1st. If I take the ACT again on September 15th, will I be able to get my scores sent on time (if I do priority shipping or w/e?)</p>

has anyone else done something like this when applying early decision? </p>

<p>As a side note, does a 28-29 utterly put me out of the running for Northwestern? (I'm a legacy there)</p>


<p>If you look on the Northwestern site, here: <a href="http://www.ugadm.northwestern.edu/freshman/applying/frosh.htm%5B/url%5D"&gt;http://www.ugadm.northwestern.edu/freshman/applying/frosh.htm&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/p>

<p>It clearly states that you can take the test up to the October date for ED. I would recommend <em>not</em> rushing the scores, many schools dislike this, and as long as you're taking it when they say you can, it will get there in time.</p>

<p>I'm going to second the comment about not rushing the scores. Rushed scores arrive in a different format than regular scores, and from what I understand are time-consuming to transfer to the correct format. Go ahead and take the October ACT but don't rush the scores.</p>

<p>Yea, there is a September ACT so......</p>
