I am going to be a senior this year and I am highly considering Princeton. I have several activities (which include leaderships roles) and rigorous classes. My problem is my SAT score. I was planning to apply early action originally, but then I received my SAT scores and only received a 2120. I still need to take SAT II's. So I was planning to the SAT II's in October and like I said, apply early action.
Due to my SAT score not being Princeton standards, I think I may retake the SAT in October (and take the SAT II's in December) and then just applying regular decision (I can't take them in November because I have something very important that day). So, I am leaning towards applying regular decision.
But the only reason I am still considering early action is because I know you have a better chance at being accepted (percentages are higher). But then I worry that my score still isn't high enough for early action acceptance.
What do you think I should do?
Just to let you know I am a white male and my family has an income of $90,000.
If I was to retake the SAT, I would be going for 2250+.
