    Thread says it all. Are there any cons? Obviously, not doing well will hurt me when applying, but what if I just focus on the SAT and SAT2 and not take the ACT? Thoughts?

    Hi @noname,
    I am a high-school student and had difficulty choosing between the two as well. I think you should choose the one you will succeed most in. The ACT is a test suited for people who are better at science and math. The SAT revolves more around reading and writing. I believe you should first take this certain practice test that has a mixture of both the SAT and ACT. It says which test you excel most in. I personally took this test and it was super helpful. You can contact any local test prep center and most of them give this test for free.
    Good luck :)

    @Melmel are there schools that require you to take both? Or can you just take whichever you'll do better on?
