Sending ACT scores...URGENT! please respond

<p>So sending each score to one school is $7? and this sends ONE score? So say you want to send TWO scores to one college(because the particular college considers highest of subscores), you need to pay $14?</p>

<p>I think a score report will contain all of your scores, up to date.</p>

<p>I know it's that way for the SAT, should be that way for the ACT (makes sense).</p>

<p>I don't think so because it asks you to specify the month, date, and year of the test you want to send. I could be wrong.</p>

<p>With ACT's, you have score choice, meaning you pick which score you want sent. You can send all or one set of scores, but you will pay for each. As each college will only look at your composite ACT score (not separate subscore), just send the ACT with the highest composite score. The best thing to do with ACT, is wait until you are done taking them and then send only the highest composite score.</p>

<p>ACT states that its charge is "per test date per report sent." In other words, you are charged a fee everytime you order any one test sent to any one place, so if you want to send those scores from two test dates to one college, it is going to be two charges. As noted, most colleges will consider only the test with the highest composite score and thus sending two tests is pointless, but there are some that take highest subscores from multiple tests.</p>

<p>That's silly. It's all about the money, isn't it?</p>

<p>Did you have any doubts about that?</p>


<p>I took the ACTs twice and got the following:
Composite- 27 (english- 25, math- 26, reading- 27, science- 29)</p>

<p>Composite- 28(english- 32, math- 30, reading- 25, science- 24!!!!!!!)</p>

<p>These are on my official transcript(which have been sent to all schools) so I don't see a reason to send both but I hope they can see that I am not a moron in science I just didn't take the test well that day.</p>

<p>So, I should only send the 28, right?</p>

<p>Well, I'm applying to Gatech and they only consider the math and english section. From two tests, I would have a 33, which is, imo, pretty good. I was just wondering how to send the scores. So I would have to pay 14 bucks to send the two scores, right? Thanks</p>

<p>Yes, you must make two sendings and pay the fee twice (see above posts). For anovice: you would send the 28 to most colleges because most do not take highest subscores with the ACT, only highest composite. Some do actually consider highest subscores and then there are those, like GTech, Rose-Hulman, which consider only the English and math subscores.</p>

<p>actually i personally like it better (Versus sat) cuz u can take the act a million times with crappy scores and colleges will never see those scores, only the highest! :) for sat1 or 2, if u have ****ty scores, there's nothing u can do to hide it and the college will see how many times u took it....</p>
