Which ACT scores to send?

<p>I know the obvious answer is "the highest" but do subscores within the subject area test matter?</p>

<p>For example:
The first time I took the ACT, I made a 28. I made a 35 on the English subject area with an 18 in both subscores of Usage/Mechanics and Rhetorical Skills. </p>

<p>The second time I took the ACT, I made a 29. This time, however, I made a 34 on the Combined English/Writing, with an 11 on the essay. </p>

<p>The third (and last) time I took it, I made a 30. This is my highest composite, along with my highest subject area test scores in Reading and Math (Made a 35 on English with 18 and 16 as the subscores, a 26 on Science (my highest science is 27) and a 31 on Writing (an 8 on the essay)). </p>

<p>Should I only pay to send in my 30 or should I send in my highest writing and English also? The ACT charges $10.00 per test date per report so I'm trying to save as much as possible.</p>

<p>I'm not sure what school's you're looking at, so that's going to a problem with this response... If you find that your designated school superscores the ACT, then send in all tests to help make the 30 a higher composite. If they don't or you'd prefer not to use the money on that, send in the 30 because the one point disparity one make a difference.</p>

<p>However, I highly suggest you send them all in. Schools do look at your best subscores regardless if they superscore.</p>

<p>The only school that I'm applying to that somewhat superscores is Duke. They say they look at the highest subscores and highest composite scores, but will not superscore (and even if they did, each time I've taken the ACT, I've always chosen my top four as my free score choice receivers). </p>

<p>Since my top schools basically have all my scores, should I just send my other ones my 30 then?</p>

<p>Yep, send that one!</p>

<p>Alright! Thanks for the input. You just saved me a bunch of money.</p>
