Submitting SAT Scores (Early Action)

APorterAPorter Registered User Posts: 3 New Member
I am a high school senior, very involved in school clubs and academics. I just recently made a account on this site because I have had a lingering question that I could not seem to find in the Forum's groups (sorry I may be in the wrong group!). I am applying Early Action at North Carolina State University (I am a NH resident). I took my SAT's last year and my scores were everything but great. So I am taking them again this Saturday! The problem I have is Early Action deadline is October 15th and I won't be getting my new SAT scores until late October. I was wondering if I should send my bad scores or if I should wait to send my new and hopefully better scores. If I should send my new scores should I do it before I can see them on college board of should I do it once I can see them? Thanks for all the help and sorry if I am in the wrong forum.

    You need to call the school to see if they will take the scores for the October test (my guess is yes) and when the latest date is to send them. You also should run the Net Price Calculator for NCSU to see if your family can afford it since you are out of state.

    Thank you so much @Erin's Dad. I would also run the Net Price Calculator, NCSU is actually pretty cheap compared to some of the other schools I am applying to.
