There goes my Ivy admission flying out the window...
No, I'm kidding. I really don't think that. HONESTLY. But I am a little disappointed, and I've got a problem.
I didn't do as well as I'd hoped on the chem SAT II. I got a 730, and I was hoping for a 750+. I've already got one science SAT II done - Bio M 780. My dad is adamant that I retake the chem SAT II (well, at least he was over the phone this morning). I am equally adamant that I should NOT take it again.
Studying for this test was an incredibly bitter experience. I hated it every step of the way, and every time I cracked open those two prep books I had to fight with my concentration to keep it on chem. I've heard that this particular test was harder than the rest, but I don't think I can do much better the second time around, even if the test is easier. I have trouble enough just finishing the test.
What can I say to convince the padre to allay his fears of my being rejected from HYPS if I don't retake the test?
How will this impact me if I choose to go the medical path?
And I'm not sure if this information will help, but I'm currently a sophomore. Haven't taken the SAT I's yet. Only took the bio SAT II last year as a freshman.
