I aced my ACT's!

  1. yay! I just got home from a LONG day on campus, taking the ACTs, going to info sessions, etc but I got my score report today before I left and I killed it! I am so excited cause this means that I will get more points so I have a greater chance of getting admitted! Thanks for letting me brag a little, my husband is at work, my mom's not home, you guys are the only ones I have to be excited with!

    I still lurk around here and there. Work has been crazy, working lots of hours, hopefully it will calm down by the time school starts, if not I will work as a student tech!

    I also went to an information session last night and there were over 50 people there! :uhoh21: and there are 6 or 7 of these info sessions through the semester. talk about competition. and interviews don't start until april/may. EEK!

    Manna, good luck tomorrow on your scholarship interview. i totally hope you get it! you deserve some good breaks.

    Congrats!!!! I hope this isn't a silly question - what is "ACT's"??? Is it similiar to the NET? Thanks, Susan

    I never heard of the ACT giving a letter grade. I thought they give you a score of 0-36.

    The ACT is pretty much just a general assessment test in 4 subjects: math, english, reading, science. Here in the state of Michigan you have to take the ACT in order to attend college regardless of what you plan on going to school for. It's pretty much like the SATs, just a little different format and you can get a score from 1-36 instead of up to 1800 like the SAT.

    I am wondering if this was not the national ACT test. I know some of our local colleges have a "ACT" they give but it is only for use in their college network. It doesnt transfer to colleges or universities outside of their affiliate schools. When i took my ACT,, it was sent off to Iowa to score and i didnt get my scores back for 3-5 weeks, same with my son when he took his in high school. So i just wonder if the one you took, and got the results from on the same day werent for that college only?
    But hey,, congrats anyway, good luck in the program!

    I don't think so. The forms were just like the ACT forms I used a long time ago the first time I took it. I also asked if the scores were valid at other schools because I am applying to more than one school and was told that they in fact would be recognized. Maybe you are thinking of the COMPASS test which I believe is developed by the same company as the ACT, I took this test at a previous school and those scores did not transfer.

    And my scores were not letter grades, they were on the same 1-36 scale.
