Retake ACT for transfer?

<p>I want to apply for transfer for 2011, into NYU Steinhardt's MCC program. But I'm worried that although my college stats are good, my ACT (which I took in high school and didn't study for) is gonna hold me back. Should I retake it before submitting my app? </p>

<p>In high school I had a 3.0 unweighted and 4.2 weighted GPA.
ACT- 22</p>

<p>I'm now a part of an Honors College, I've completed one full year and want to transfer after my second.</p>

<p>3.9 GPA
Phi Theta Kappa
SAID
Staff member/writer for school newspaper
Editor-in-chief of school magazine
300 community service hours
President’s Award for Community Service
+ more clubs and things I will become a part of during my second year.</p>

<p>Should I be worried about my score and retake it? NYU is my number one transfer school.</p>

<p>Correct me if I'm wrong, but I dont think NYU looks at scores that were achieved during your college years.</p>

<p>NYU is one of the few schools that dont look at SAT scores. Your hs stats matter very little as a high school transfer anyways.</p>

<p>I've been asking myself the same question. I took my ACT as a junior in 2008 and apparently staying up all night watching movies wasn't a very good idea. Who knew? Anyway, I got a 23 and never retook them because I was going to a community college to save $$$.</p>

<p>I think I'm just going to retake them anyway. Even though I have a list of schools I want to apply to for next fall with, hopefully, a 4.0 and an Associate's Degree in a year, and those schools don't require test scores, I'm very likey to change my mind and I just want to make sure I'm comfortable with my scores so that doesn't hurt my application.</p>

<p>I think I can bum a fee waiver from some high school students I know...if not, that's $60 gone.</p>

<p>At this point, I know I'm not going to do any worse so, why not?</p>

<p>^after two years, your hs stats matter very little. However, I think the cutoff id around 1800 - 26. It may be in your best interest to retake it, that way youll be more confident about your app</p>
