This is random, but do you guys think an ACT score of 28 will get me a full scholarship? how many points does the average ACT score go up? i want to take it in September again. How did you guys do on your ACTs?

    30 is amazing! I wish I would get a 30! and @karatechopper 17 is really good for a 7th grader.

    Haha not since 8th grade. I'm graduating next year. When I took it my scores were in the 9-11th grade levels but I'm scared of the PSAT and SAT. I think I'm going to try to take them this fall.

    if ur a math person u shuld take the ACT instead of the SAT. SAT is more vocab and reading. Im graduating this year and Ive only taken the ACT once. I wish i culd take the PSAT, but since im graduating from high school in 3 years, I lost the opportunity to take it.

    I think the higher you go in ranks the less they pay attention to your test scores. At some point your score will be no different than any other person applying. I got a 24 over all and I got some pretty good scholarships. It just depends on the school you apply to.

    I applied to a lot of private schools and a couple of public schools but I saw that private schools gave out more money. Then tend to cover most of my cost. There are a lot of good private engineering schools like cal tech and harvey mudd. I got into Bucknell which is a good private school for undergraduate engineering. My friend got accepted to Lehigh. I think the best engineering school that I got accepted to was UCSD.
