    I am beaming! :hyper:

    Composite score of a 32.

    English- 33
    Math- 26 (I'm going to retake the test because of this, I know I can do better if I study)
    Reading- 35
    Science- 32

    Apparently this is 99th percentile of everyone who took it.

    I am very proud of myself, and had to share with you guys. :hyper:

    Good Job

    I took it twice and my highest was a 26. Both times were the morning after a concert though, so I could have gone a little higher, but I didn't care that much. A 26 awarded me with a tuition scholarship so why go on.

    Hmmm...must have changed since I took it (8 yrs ago). The max was 31. Good going dude!!!!

    The first time I took it I got a 27. The second time I took it I actually got more got answers correct but got a 26 :meh: . I remember almost shyting my pants the first time. I get the runs when I'm nervous. :help:

    I was in the top 1% of the nation in english/grammar skills. But I've smoked alot of ganja and drank alot of beer since then. My brain is a shriveled raisin. :oops:

    Congratulations! :hyper:
    Any score in the 30s is quite an accomplishment. I'm damn proud of my score, and was able to pick from a pretty impressive pool of colleges. Bringing that math up will hopefully help to open an even wider field of schools before you. That's assuming you haven't already decided, of course.

    Excellent!!

    I got a 32 as well--don't remember my composites that well.

    I think it was

    English - 35
    Reading - 36
    Math - 27
    Science - 29

    Thats what came to mind and averages to a 31.75, so I think that's right :D

    Anyways--congrats! That should get you a decent scholarship (assuming you have a GPA to match) to just about any school you get accepted to!

    Nope. The max score on the ACT has always been a 36.
     
  9. holy cow, talkbass must be filled with geniuses! or maybe the lower scoreing people are just ashamed ;) well, i thought i was pretty good with a 28! (well, ok, not bad for 5th in my class!)

    btw, i believe the national average is 21-22, so you guys are really smart! where are you guys thinking about going to college?

    I think I'd like University of Chicago, but I'll apply to that, U of M, MSU, and maybe Columbia (so far, I'm only a junior).

    I'm thinking about MIT, but it is more than likely that I will stay in Texas and go to A&M.

    Since we are on the subject of test grades SAT's came out last week. 1440 here.

    I guess you have to live here before you can appreciate it.

    I admit---it's NOT the greatest city on the face of the earth, but it's not nearly as bad as it's made out to be. Its proximity to Dallas (your home) and Austin makes it a lot better. Also, we're not all a bunch of Branch Davidian murderers down here :p :(

    At least give it a look before you make any decisions. It's a REALLY awesome school and I'm convinced you'll love the place if you just look. I'll be happy to show you around the campus if you wanna visit sometime :)
