SAT, ACT, or Both?
I just got my scores for my SATI.
Critical Reading: 630
I am taking the most advanced courses in my school (IB) and have several other strong EC's. I am hoping to go to an Ivy League College, so now comes the question of ACT or SAT. I took the ACT but have not yet gotten my scores yet. I expect it to be similar though.
I know my SAT is low, but mainly because I need to study how to master the critical reading and writing. I truly believe that practice is what I need to raise my score. But which score should I raise?
Should I spend my summer studying for the SAT, ACT, or both? I personally feel that the ACT is easier, primarily because there is a science section and also because all types of a question are in one section.
My main question: Would colleges care if I have a low initial SAT (that I never re-took) but a great ACT after studying for the whole summer? What if I just don't send my initial SAT score, only my improved ACT?
Thanks so much!
