Some other info: I probably plan to retake the SAT again this fall. I screwed up on the math and want to improve on that (I think I can snag an 800). Also, I sucked at the multiple choice on the writing section, so I can improve there. Additionally, I am going to study vocab for reading. Hopefully I can get past the 2300 threshold. I don't know if I want to take the SAT II Chem test again, but I know I could improve drastically as I haven't taken AP Chem yet. My times are not good enough for recruitment. Please provide tips on what I could do better, also! Thanks for reading this far!
