Last March, I took the SAT and achieved a composite score of 2310 (800 CR, 760 M, 750 W). The Math curve was infuriatingly harsh that month, and I lost 40 points for one wrong answer.
I am a bit worried about this, because according to the College Board website, Caltech's middle 50% of SAT Math scores was 770-800, which puts me in the bottom 25%. I fear that I could be at a disadvantage compared to the many other Asians who score 800s on Math. I did score 800 on Math Level 2, but I feel that is fairly common among Caltech applicants.
Should I retake the SAT to raise my Math score, or do you think I should leave it as it is? By the way, I am better at ACT Math, but I don't know if any colleges pay much attention to ACT subscores.
