Send ACT Score and SAT 1 Score?


<p>So, I've taken both the ACT (Composite: 35, Science: 35, Math:36, English:35, essay - 10, Reading:33) and SAT (Total: 2250, W: 770 - essay 10, CR: 750, M: 730). I also have 4 SAT subject tests all 780+ which I know that I will definitely report. </p>

<p>After looking at some of the score conversion charts, it appears that a composite 35 on the ACT is approximately a 2340 SAT </p>

<p>So, my question is should I report ONLY my ACT score or should I report both my ACT and SAT score? </p>

<p>PS. Personally, I'm leaning toward reporting only my ACT score because it does appear to convert to be higher than my SAT score. Also, I don't think agree with the concept some people have been espousing to me about colleges preferring the SAT over the ACT.</p>

<p>I would report them both. They are both very good scores, so why not show yourself off a little bit?</p>

<p>I think you should send both- you did very well on both of them, so why not send them in? I hate to agree with the people you've been talking to, but I do think that some colleges prefer the SAT.</p>

<p>Personally, I believe that two good scores are better than one, but do what you think is right for you.</p>

<p>You can send both just in case. Contrary to what everyone says, I still think that colleges prefer SATs over ACT. Why else would they (SATs) be so popular?</p>

<p>^ They aren't. ~1.5 million students take the SAT each year and the SAME number of students take the ACT.</p>

<p>Here's my post from the other thread:

I flat out disagree. Send only your ACT.</p>

<p>There is NO innate bias favoring the SAT over the ACT. Your composite 35 is ~100 points higher when converted to an SAT scale compared to your actual score. Why send close to perfection and a little bit further from perfection when it's best for you to send your best performance? ACT only.


<p>Are you sure that statistic is not counted as double? Meaning kids who took both of them.</p>

<p>Yes. </p>
