High SAT score but low essay score
I got a 1590 on my SAT (790 reading and writing, 800 math) but I only got a 15 (6,4,5) on the essay. I also took it back in January and got a 1510 and 12. I know I would be crazy to take it again but how bad does the essay score affect me? My grades for my English classes are all A's and I took AP Lit and got a 5. Is that enough to signal to colleges that I'm not a bad writer or do I need to do something else?
