Should I email the university I applied to and ask them to not consider my ACT Score?

I am a senior and already applied to the business school, but I realized that my ACT score is on the lower end of their score. My superscore is a 31 and the average ACT for the business school is 30-33. However, my highest science was a 27 and my math was a 29.

In Calculus AB, I received a B. I have taken other higher level math classes.

GPA: 4.41 Weighted

I would not hesitate to submit a 31 ACT if the middle was 30-33. In fact, if you had a 28 that would still be okay according to the 3 point rule established by Collegevine this cycle.

Good luck with your college admissions process!!!!!

You should probably submit that score, but if you really don't want to, I know that I have seen several schools say that you can email them to change to test-optional. If you do decide to change it you will want to do it quickly.

Just to confirm, no need to reach out! A test score reported within those quartiles (I assume those are quartiles) is better than no score at all.
