I took the October SAT in my junior year and got a 2170 (CR: 670, M: 770, W: 730). I wasn't satisfied for my CR reading score, and my mom wasn't either, so I retook the SAT in January. Unfortunately, I didn't study very hard, and my CR score improved a little and my M and W score dropped A LOT (CR: 700, M: 700, W: 640, Total: 2040).
Colleges I'm currently considering are:
UC Berkeley (Parent's first choice)
UC Davis (MY first choice)
Pepperdine University (Possibly Third)
Cal Poly (Fourth?)
Santa Clara University (Safety)
UC San Diego
Claremont McKenna College
So, should I study over the summer more and retake the SAT in the fall? Or should I just focus on something else?
