That was one of our other debates Kelly. When we lived up in Michigan, most kids took the ACT unless they were going Ivy league or someplace way out of state. Here in Texas, the SAT is much more prevalent, and they don't offer the ACT at her school. But the two main colleges she is looking at, one wants either or, and the other one will take either or, but prefers the ACT, so she decided on both as a precaution. She did well on the PSAT, but she also knows her weakness that she needs to work on before the test. I suppose we need to look at the SAT subject tests, we hadn't discussed those at all.

The ACT is given as part of the state standardized test, so dd#1 will take it then.

Usually the schools offer a PSAT for sophomores to take as a practice run. The PSAT during the fall of junior year puts them in eligibility for National Merit Scholarships, and then they usually take SAT's for college in the spring/summer of junior year and/or fall of senior year. You can look at www.collegeboard.com for more information.

In Illinois, the ACT is part of the graduation requirement. All Juniors take it in April. Dd tested well last year. She did retake it last Saturday, she can up her scholarship with a one point raise.
