I know that my test scores are low, but I am just very bad at taking standardized tests. Also with ACTs is it possible to mix the scores because than I would have a 30-31ish...or should I just send both reports to all my colleges?

Thank you,
-Raghu

    ehhh not sure. For out of state ur test scores might be a little low, but you have very good e.c.'s. I think UW is like 80 percent in-state so its definitely a lot more difficult to get in outa-state. I still like ur chances tho - i'd say apply

    I second what was already said. Everything looks really good except your SATs and being out of state makes it difficult.
