Acts

Post by o1lucky132005 » Sun Jun 27, 2004 1:30 am

Ok, here's the deal. I got my ACT scores today. I got a 33 (out of a possible 36, just in case someone doesn't know). This was the second time I've taken the ACTs. I got a 29 when i took them in April of my sophomore year. I'm really happy that I got a 33, but i know i can do better. My math score didn't change at all (26) and i really think it should have. I'm thinking about taking them again (after a lot of studying). I would really like to get a perfect score, which would almost guarentee me a full ride anywhere i want to go to college. My mom thinks i'm being too hard on myself and I don't need to retake the ACTs and that i should be happy with what i got. I am happy, but i'm always striving to be better and this is no exception. I'm just an over-achiever and perfectionist when it comes to my intelligence and grades. What does everyone think, should i take them again?
Sweet dreams!

Anyone can be taken, at any time in our lives, but we always wait until they're gone to say the things we never had the courage to before." -Unknown

well...its not so much about what other people think....it is, after all, your choice.



If you feel you should, then go for it...if not, then that's cool too. It's your decision...do what YOU feel is right for you.

Hey,



A 33 is excellent! If you want to take them again, go ahead, but remember that many schools prefer the SATs over the ACTs.



But, I don't think you could. A 33 is, again, excellent, and it should get you into any normal college.



Cheers,
