I am going to be applying with my ACT score. I've done well in the past and I believe they will benefit my application. In addition, I'd like to go into a rigorous STEM program so some departments require it.

Hi there! I am planning to apply with my SAT/ACT scores because I think that my scores are high enough to do more good than harm for me! It all depends on what you think your scores would do for you (if they are like a 31+ or a 1450+, then I definitely recommend you apply with them) :)

I am sending in my SAT :) generally, if your score is at/above the 25th percentile for the school, sending it in will raise your chances of admission!
