This is the one area where I'll agree that college athletes are exploited. Some of them get into schools they wouldn't if not a stud jock, and have absolutely no chance of success in any area of study that amounts to anything.

The ACT is scored with a points system based on the combination of Level 1 points (classmates your son scored higher than relative to the size of their brains) and Level 2 points (the total of Level 1 points of the classmates scored higher than divided by the total number of ACT tests taken by the members of the class) For example earning a higher score than somebody who doesn't have a very large brain won't earn you a large amount of points unless they scored higher than a lot of their other classmates. On the other hand earning a higher score than somebody who has a very large brain will add a large amount of points to your ACT score. The top eight scorers from each wing of the high school face off in the playoffs at neutral sites such as the cafeteria and the gymnasium each Friday (since the ACT stopped hosing them on Saturdays starting this year) and only half the kids move on each week. This eventually leads to the school championship in the Dean's office where the top scorer earns a scholarship to Harvard. It's a complicated system but has been in use for many years. Joe Eitel has a good website where you can see how many points your son scored compared to his peers. A 27 is pretty good so I would expect him to earn a 4 or 5 seed and could potentially make a deep playoff run.

You know, if it was your first kid and your kid was maybe the first with possibility of college, I can see the thread as legitimately naive. I'll be honest. I had NO CLUE what my ACT scores meant. They educate kids better now on what the scores mean?

Maybe give the guy a break. 27 is better than a "MAC" score. It would make you eligible for consideration at least, into most B10. Even Ivy but a long shot. Most Ivy's have a 25 percentile in the low 30's or high 20's. I don't know how narrow that band but it could possible reach to 27. Have to be a pretty special 27 outside that test I'd imagine.

Harrycrane is an unknown quantity at this point
Kid can improve on that if he wants to bad enough even if just a point or two which can be a difference maker for some schools.

Bottom line and this is what I have told my kids for years, the harder you work and the better your academic profile is , the more " OPTIONS" you have , why limit yourself to less choices about where you can possibly go ?

"Wow what a response " I didn't expect such a huge following on this thred . I didnt start it to glote on my own son. I thought this forem was an adult thing that consisted of intelligent conversation. I know how the test works and what schools look for and thats why i have always told my children education first.

When i see kids with all the talent and no grades to back it up i put the blame on the parents .

Good luck to your boys this upcoming season.

Before you post next time ask your "son" how to spell thread, gloat, and forum. There is a English section on the ACT.

Not a fair statement! Physical ability and mental ability are not the same. One of the best athletes I ever saw has a learning disability that kept him from getting a D1 scholarship. We are all uniquely gifted, parental influence has little to do with ability once the genes are passed out, but may have much to do about attitude or how the ability is utilized.

A 27 is a good score. It will get you into any state school you apply to. The average ACT at Ohio State School of Engineering is a 28.
If you are a recruited athlete and score a 25 or so with decent grades you're fine.

But same goes for a kid that's an accomplished artist or in many other ways. Same goes for a kid that didn't have the academic background of many other entrants but still scored above what would be expected of someone with that limited background.

What matters other than they pass the classes and that the sports programs are held with integrity? Not unsympathetic to the kid that was left out because of the position filled by a "less" qualified, most of us have been there. We go on to the next best thing and try to make our achievements there. But ACTs and GPA do not measure everything useful or indicative of success. I might at one time thought so but now I've been in front of too many students from those weaker backgrounds who are so competitive and internally driven, they catch-up and excel.

Based a conclusion upon a faulty or unfounded premise. You should head over to the Debate Forum. You'll fit right in.

Too often though it is the parents who don't put the emphasis on a academics. I hear all the time from parents who spend major $ on trainers, shoes, travel teams, camps, etc yet refuse to pay for tutors or ACT/SAT test prep courses.
