Advantage Testing LSAT Q&A

What is the ACT used for?

The ACT is designed to evaluate your college readiness by determining how well you have mastered the core components of a typical high school curriculum. The ACT is an important part of applications to most U.S.-based colleges and universities. However, keep in mind that some schools now have Test Optional or Test Blind admissions policies, meaning they do not require ACT or SAT scores to apply.

Admissions testing policies are frequently updated, so be sure to verify specific testing requirements on the official website of any school to which you are applying and make sure the information you’re looking at is current. If you can’t find the information you need online, you can always call or email the school’s admissions office.
