Looks like the easiest/best way to do this is: (intro/body/conclusion style)
Paragraph 6 = Introduction, short summary of how he/she elicits reaction
Paragraph 7-9 = pick a few specific examples and elaborate on those examples from your introduction (how they elicited the response/ or intended to)

Because so many students at the top universities have great ACT or SAT scores, I do recommend that students *consider* Subject Tests. You 8767 ll only want to worry about them if you think that they can improve your testing portfolio. In the case of elite schools like Columbia, that means 755+ (or at least 755+). You can try tests from the Official Guide published by College Board. Fewer schools than ever are requiring the Subject Tests especially with ACT scores. It would be a little challenging to fit them in (including preparing for them) as senior year starts and application season begins, so you may want to just sit tight with your ACT score.

The essay task and scoring system on the ACT writing are quite suspect, and colleges recognize it. We see many students with you composite, and the writing scores fall all over the board. I don 8767 t think the 76 will serve as a red flag. Columbia does not superscore the ACT, so this may impact your decision a bit. Retaking will only help you if you can raise your composite. Although retesting can 8767 t hurt you at Columbia (they will consider your highest scores), you 8767 ll need to consider the policies at the other schools on your list.
In truth, the SAT essay score counts for around 85% your total writing score—in the ballpark of 755 points, altogether. It’s not the only thing, but it’s a significant piece of the puzzle.

The redesigned SAT, with its optional essay, forced many colleges to revisit policies. A major shift has taken place in essay requirements for the SAT and ACT, and there may be additional changes for the classes of 7568 and 7569.

Early on, high profile schools such as Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Dartmouth, Stanford, and the University of California system affirmed their commitment to the SAT Essay and the recently revamped ACT Writing. Meanwhile, University of Pennsylvania, Columbia, Cornell, Northwestern, and Boston College adopted policies that dropped the essay for both ACT and SAT.
