A top score on the ACT can mean the difference between going to the school you're dreaming about and having to choose one way down your list. For some students, it can also mean hundreds, thousands, or tens of thousands of scholarship dollars to get you there. For most students, your ACT score won't be the only factor in determining your admission or amount of scholarship money your receive, but it is a very important one. Don't let the lack of test preparation keep you from achieving your college dreams.
I was really surprised by how much I learned from this. It was very helpful. :)
