Will a bad old SAT impact my chances?

I took the old SAT my sophmore year for fun and to feel the test out. Needless to say I didn't do great (1950). On the new sat I scored a 1480 and then a 1510, both scores I am happy with. However, Yale requires applicants submit all SAT sittings. Will the 1950 negatively impact my application? I also have a 33 ACT that I'm wondering if I should submit instead. Please let me know your thoughts!

    You should submit your ACT score.

    Incorrect. Yale requires all SAT scores or all ACT scores, but not both (other colleges may have different policies). For Yale anyway, just submit your ACT score. Good luck.
