    I think she does have a good chance! I don't think they superscore, so it is a good idea for her to retake it. (I actually got a 26 the first time and then studied lightly for a week before I took it the second time and it brought my score up to a 30). The average scores of accepted students is 27-31. She has good extracurriculars and as long as she keeps up her good gpa, I think she has a great possibility.

    No superscoring at UW. Middle of the pack-worth applying.

    The 26 ACT is in the bottom quartile of accepted students.

    I'm calling "the pack" the majority, more than half.
