Should I retake a 33 ACT if I am applying to top-tier schools (ivy league), or is a 33 fine as is?

    Yes, retake the test...unless you're sick of studying for it...or the opportunity costs of dedicating time to ACT study become too great (sacrificing EC involvement, stress, etc.).

    Depends on the rest of what you have on your app. If your math score especially is on the low side, you might want to retake.

    You should retake the test.

    The real question is can you do better than that. If you feel like you have not reached the plateau yet and it was your first attempt, you should give it any trial after more preparation. 33 is within the mid 50% for top schools, so it is not really outstanding.
