    Well from simply adding your score and multiplying by (2/3) I got that you got a 1366 in the old 1600 scale, which is right at the mean 50% (1380) - so I would say it's your call to submit

    Since the new SATs havent been going on for too long, there isnt a lot of information available about them, but I'd say you could if you want to - they shouldn't hurt you.

    Hrm. One of my essays was about a history teacher, since I was applying as a math/computer science/biology person, I mixed it up and said my best teacher was history and explained why. The other was about why I wanted to be a biology major with an anecdotal tale about the lack of reaction to people on a beach to a sea turtle coming ashore. (and how I thought that was sad and could be changed through education).

    Not sure which was which there.
