ACT info

High School students taking the ACT should know that even though the ACT has an option of sending only their top score to the college of their choice, many colleges are still requiring applicants to send ALL of their scores. UW Madison is one of these schools. I suggest students prepare and only take the ACT when they feel they are ready. Even though admission representatives say that they will only use a student’s highest score, I still feel that the fewer tries the better. When preparing for the ACT I suggest students obtain a paper and pencil practice test from the High School guidance dept vs. practicing over the internet. The paper and pencil test helps students gauge the time constrants of the test better than the online practice test.
