Perspective One: What we lose with the replacement of people by machines is some part of our own humanity. Even our mundane daily encounters no longer require from us basic courtesy, respect, and tolerance for other people.
As you probably know, Columbia does not require the Writing. It will still be submitted with your ACT score, but the fact that it is optional for test takers gives you an idea of how important Columbia considers it not very. The essay task and scoring system on the ACT writing are quite suspect, and colleges recognize it. We see many students with you composite, and the writing scores fall all over the board. I don 8767 t think the 76 will serve as a red flag. Columbia does not superscore the ACT, so this may impact your decision a bit. Retaking will only help you if you can raise your composite. Although retesting can 8767 t hurt you at Columbia (they will consider your highest scores), you 8767 ll need to consider the policies at the other schools on your list.
It is up to a student as to which scores a college will see. SAT students are given the option to fill out a section in their test booklets to have College Board send their scores to certain schools, but doing this may come with a downside, as colleges will then see a score history most students will be better off sending scores themselves, rather than letting College Board handle it for them. However, some colleges specifically request a score history. As such, many students retake the ACT and SAT at least once but try to limit many retakes.

Reading Comprehension (also known as Critical Reading) questions test your ability to understand a passage and answer questions on the basis of what is stated and implied in the passage. You need to read the passage first so that you can identify the main idea of the passage and appreciate features such as the author's tone and attitude as well as the organization of the passage. Scroll back to the relevant point in the text as you do each question.
Terri, I really like that analogy. It 8767 s apt for some colleges that claim to only 8775 recommend 8776 Subject Tests Stanford and Georgetown, for example. That has not come up on ACT Writing / SAT Essay. We 8767 ve tried to classify as 8775 Optional 8776 colleges that don 8767 t use the essay for admission. There may be several cases where the essay score will be considered if submitted (unfortunately, one can 8767 t leave it off of a submitted test date). More common are schools that 8775 recommend 8776 the essay only because it is used for freshman composition placement.
I 8767 m usually loathe to recommend retesting based on Writing alone, but the discrepancy between your sons 8767 Composite and Writing score and the fact that your sons have higher scores on the test without Writing (which means *some* schools that require writing will not use the 86 and 87) makes me think that a retake would be useful. Scores in the low 75 8767 s are common enough that I don 8767 t think colleges will think much of them one way or the other. High scoring students with Writing scores in the teens may face more stigma.
I think your teacher is trying to stop you from writing enormous sentences, so as a general rule his/her advice is good. But it s not strictly a rule.
7. We like breaking rules in English! It s true that we normally use the past perfect with by , but the sentence you quoted is also fine. If you re in doubt, use the past perfect.
