640 SAT writing score a handicap?
My daughter plans to apply for top schools next fall and it looks like Stanford is her top choice. She has great overall numbers:
Asian Female going to a public school (Junior this year)
4.0 UW GPA (taking all the toughest available regular and AP courses),
good-to-greatgreat EC and evidence of commitment to local community
SAT II Math 750 Sat II French 800
780 SAT I Math and 770 SAT Reading
However, her SAT writing score is only 640 (89th percentile) bringing her overall SAT score down to 2190.
Would you advise her to take SAT again to bring her total to > 2200 (I read in another thread that they tend to view 2200 and above as a group)? Would her weak SAT writing score have a major negative impact? She is confident of improving her score is she takes it again, but is it worth it (She plans to take Physics and Math II Subject tests in October.
Thanks in advance!
