I am an international student doing the IB Diploma at an international school in China. I will be applying to Princeton and Stanford this year. I took the ACT with writing in April, June and September and respectively got 34 Composite/25 writing and 35 Composite/19 writing, 34Composite/(6/12Writing). These schools require ACT's writing test. I am worried that it will reflect poorly on how ready I am for college writing and also raise issues about the authenticity of my application essays. Should I retake the test (again)?
If I don't take the test again, which scores should I send to Princeton? (It allows score choice)
I am also considering Brown, which does not require but strongly recommends the writing test.
