Gaps in ACT scores=important?

<p>so i took the ACT earlier this year and got a 30 composite. but the gaps in the scores were huge: 36 reading and 33 english, and 25 math and 26 science. will this significantly affect my chances of admission? btw, the best schools that im applying to are probably kenyon and oberlin, where a 30 is about their midrange.</p>

<p>Your composite score is the most important. However, you may want to retake to show your competence in math and science analysis.</p>

<p>I agree with the above, especially considering you are applying to LACs, which place more value on having a wide array of academic skills.</p>

<p>Also many LACs will superscore your ACT, so if you really focus on the math and science next time, may help you quite a bit.</p>

<p>Ok, thanks… although I was really hoping not to have to take it again… oh well. maybe I should actually practice a bit, haha</p>

<p>Actually, I’ve never heard of superscoring the ACT, only the SAT.</p>
