"Sending All ACT Scores"

When a school (in my case Carnegie Mellon, University of Miami, Duke) says that they require “all ACT scores”, how strict and necessary really is that policy? My parents have always been strong on college prep and so I have taken it a handful of times in high school and am seriously concerned with the amount of money it’ll take to send 5 scores to multiple schools. Is it possible that I can only send 1 or 2, and would I be penalized for doing so?

I believe you can call the company who does the ACT and ask for them to cancel your lowest scores. And then it’ll be as if you never took some of the tests, but you may want to look into that.

Alright, thank you so much!
