A “duh” tip #4

The question was recently posed to AdmitSpit by a student of whether or not he should take the SATII tests if he was applying to Yale.

He had already taken the SAT Reasoning exam but wasn’t sure if he wanted to waste the time taking the SAT Subject Tests as opposed to just taking the ACT exam.

Based on the post titled, “Standard list for colleges’ standardized testing requirements” he knew that Yale required either the SAT and two SAT Subject Tests or the ACT test with writing.

So, if you’ve already taken the SAT, then just take the SAT Subject Tests for two hours, as opposed to doing the ACT with writing which takes four hours! It seems obvious enough I’d think, but apparently it warrants writing a “duh” tip about. Only point against this would be if you didn’t have two subjects you were good enough at and preferred to take the more general ACT instead; but, that said, I think it’d be rare to be in such a position where your ACT would be better score-wise than two subject tests.
