I got a 16 this october on my first act
I didnt study
I didnt try
I was like....
Fuck this shit.
And well i could care less
Why does a big ass test need to determine if im good enough for your college...? I'm paying dammit lol
Not everyone test well, but they can sure as hell show off their skills in other ways.
Why don't they make a test for specific majors and just use your transcript for other classes?
My friend has devoted her senior yr to getting a perfect score on the SAT

Oh hell naw.
Community college then i want to transfer. I have a 3.33 gpa
And if i am lucky i'll get a full ride to MICA, i live so close and already got letters from em

Surprised how many people favored the ACT over the SAT. I never took the ACT because the college I applied to only needed an SAT score:

Reading: 600
Math: 570
Writing: 740

1910 overall. And then I went into a major that required a lot of math. God help me.

I remember taking the ACT back in June of 2010 right after I completed my junior year of high school. I got a 25 overall composite score, but I think I lucked out a little, because I excelled in the English and Reading sections. I have always been a slightly above-average test taker with subjects I enjoy so I guess that was a contributing factor, but I dont think I could get a perfect 36 score without feeling sick or get terrible anxiety about it.

Although I took my ACT after my junior year, it has taken me until now to actually go to school. After I graduated in May 2011, I took a year off from school and relaxed my mind and worked part-time so I could figure out my goals and what I want to pursue in my life. I was going to go to college in the fall, but I moved to another state in the summer and I wasnt able to figure out shit like financial and and applications and all that until after I moved, so I decided to go for this spring instead to a decent university.

I am very thankful for my 25 ACT score and my 3.56 GPA. It is something I do not and will not brag about, because I did work hard and wanted to do good in school. It was a personal choice and not one influenced solely by my parents wishes. Some people have different situations, and one of my real-life friends is a good example of someone who is a piss poor test taker but she has the drive and determination to improve and study for what she wants to become.

If you have to go to a community college to get to a university you want to go to more, then so be it. It's just a choice and if it benefits your being to go about this way despite your scores, then more power to you! Universities would not have these programs in community colleges if they did not think about those kids in a similar situation as yourself. It might not be fair to some, but you can't please everyone I suppose.

I am going to SCSU and I am excited, so I extend my excitement in hopes that you find a good option for you soon :)

People are most of the time open minded, it's just that use some acronym without giving explanation or a link to understand open the thread to questions. Sometimes questions can be a little bit hard and direct, and of course you will face some troll.
Don't take this general forum too seriously, take a deep breath and simply ignore people when you are not sure about what they want, nobody will blame you for that =)

That's higher than the national average, at least. My school is just a strange outlier--our average is a 2200. But gotta work your ass off to stay in that school because it kicks out GPAs that are too low.

Uh, if you bother to go to a standardized test and then purposefully do shitty on it- why should any school take you. Why should a community college? When you then go to apply to a job, and your attitude is "Aw fuck dis shit!" tell me WHY SHOULD THEY HIRE YOU?
Because you're so young and hip and kool?
I don't think so.
You're not entitled to anything in life. If you're not willing to try, then have fun living on welfare in a trailer.

Excuse you.
I didnt purposely do bad. I did what i could without going into great depth of thinking, if i did , my anxiety would have spikes following a headache
My attitude when getting i job would be that. It WOULD be "get it done right the 1st time" (what my veteran father stresses to all his girls).
You judge my entire personality b/c i decided not to try on a test that i dont need to succeed? If i'm going to HCC i dont need that test.
I was forced to signed up for it late, and there was no way i could cram studying in my schedule

No i dont think im hip and cool cuz im young, considering my many attempts of suicide . I know extremely well that if i want something i have to get it my DAMN self

I pick and choose what is best for my life to maintain sanity and stay alive. Only reason i am still here is b/c maybe theres someone like me who just needs to hear "its ok" to make it in life and i can be that voice.
So dont act as if idk the value of life and its complexity
I suggest for u to TRY to get to know someone b4 u insult their quality of life
Thank u

You're gonna have to learn to get over your "anxiety" to make it in the real world. You sound kind of angry. Probably you should go retake the test, and try harder. A 16 is not acceptable.

I am very much aware of the world not caring about my disorder, but it will only solve itself by drugs or exposure xP
Of course i am angry, i felt attacked and i'm really not a bad person like u were implying
I'm sure if i studied i would have done good
But for now i have other things to do

I went to a community college before university--big mistake by the way--and at the time they didn't even use ACT/SAT scores. They had you take a placement test specific to the school. Later on they changed it so if you had an ACT score above a certain number (probably 18 or 20), then you wouldn't have to take the test. So I took the test twice for no reason. I guess it was a good experience for the future...time will tell on that one.

Anyway, if you have any questions about colleges and stuff, feel free to ask. I've been through the bullshit so many times I feel like an expert.
