<p>My unweighted GPA is 3.85, and I am in the top 25% of my class.
However, my SAT/ACT scores are pretty mediocre compared to my performance in class.
The two are almost equivalent. I just want to know if schools will look at my scores and just automatically reject me...even the schools I thought were going to be my safeties make me nervous: The schools I'm applying too:
Northeastern, Syracuse, Boston University, Rutgers, Penn State
I didn't have all the time in the world to study for the tests due to football and working, and this is the situation where I am in...</p>
<p>for the acts, I did not study/prepare for it at all...but I managed to do well; and I think many points were deducted because I wasn't able to finish due to the lack of understanding of the test itself..Timing being a big issue:</p>
<p>do you guys think I should practice (especially timing) and take the ACT again?</p>
