I took the SAT's for a third time today. My last two tests were in Dec and Jan. I planned to study over the summer but didn't really get a chance to do so. But since I had already signed up, I decided to just go for it and try not to make stupid mistakes.
However, I know I made foolish mistakes. I probably got -2 in Math; I got 760 last two times. I got at least two SC questions wrong but I think I did well on the passages, but still probably got about the same as last time around -5. I think my writing score improved a lot though. I got a 680 last time, but I think I can get a 780 this time.
How will colleges and in particular UPenn view taking SAT's 3 times? I might just cancel my score because I don't think my math or CR improved at all. I don't know if its worth keeping for the writing. Is taking the SAT 3 time ok or too much. Also, do I have to write on my common app, my scores from all 3 sittings?
