Hey all, I have an weird situation. The thing is I think I have pretty good resume with good scores except my regular SAT score. But I am scared I won’t get into a solid school from them because of my SAT score. I feel it may be too low, and my outlook on attending a college I want to is pretty is not looking good. Can someone chance me so I know if I should worry so much, because it’s on my mind all the time.
