This must be a dream right? Less then a week ago I was an ordinary Junior at my High school; planning for college, going through the rigerous tests, and reading seemingly endless number of pamphlets for various colleges across the State and Nation. Then on Wednesday I was inducted into the national honor society. WOW! I'm a national honor student...sweet...still hasn't really sunk in yet, but the pressure to remian in said society sure has. Then yesterday I recieved a letter from the ACT college admissions office. I was so scared to open it...it was my ACT test results. The tests was so frustrating! I had to guess on almost all of the qurstions simply because the time restaint! I knew I had failed it; the best I could probably hope for was probably a 15 out of 36. But apparently the administators thought differently. The ACT test is out of a possible 36 and the national average is 20; I got a 23. A 23! I got a great score on my first try! OMG! I'm still wobbly! I don't even have to bother taking the test again if I don't want to! But I will seeing as I didn't take the optional writing portion. But I can simply finish high school and go onto college without worrying about those stupid ACT/SAT test requirements! The college I want to go to requires an ACT score of 20 or above! I'm so happy!...and relieved.
