I took the SAT School Day last month--the first time I took the SAT--and got a 1580 total (780 CR+W; 800 M).
My essay score was less stellar, being 6/5/6.
Certainly, I recognize how high my total is. At the same time, I signed up for the SAT in June before receiving my score, anticipating a lower score.
I researched how the essay is scored and receiving a 7 or 8 on a section seems to be quite rare.
For my colleges, I'm only considering applying to Michigan and MIT.
My first question is that does the SAT School Day hold less value than the regular SAT for colleges? And second, should I retake the SAT this June?
