    Unless you are good enough at track to be recruited for it at Colgate, I would retake SAT. A 1360 SAT is below the white male, non-athlete avg of 1384. While you still have a solid shot of getting in with a 1360, why not give yourself the best chance possible? Just don't let getting ready for it take away from doing a thorough job on your applications.

    Anyone else have an opinion?
