Quick question about the undergrad application?

Might be a bit dumb but hey I want to make sure. In the section where I list my ACT scores, for writing, do they mean the essay score? Or the English combined with writing score? I got an 8 on the essay and a 28 on the combined score.

So which is it? Thanks!

Also, does USF super score SAT/ACT?

    I have no clue about the first part. If they ask for English, Math, Reading, and Writing then fill in the appropriate blanks. If it asks for the first three then don't include writing.

    For the second part, USF does superscore. It comes in handy for getting more scholarship money! :p

    I didn't take the ACT, but if the self report of the score is divided into Math, Science, English, Writing, then I'm going to just take a guess and say that the writing is JUST the essay. If it just says Math, Science, and Writing, I say put the English score. Either way, they truly only pay real attention to the ACT score when it comes from a score report, so don't worry about it too much!

    USF does super score the ACT for sure and I'm almost positive they do it for the SAT as well.
