Subject Tests Just for Princeton?
So, I'm currently deciding which reach schools I want to apply to. As a writer, Princeton would definitely be my top choice school. However, my SAT score (which I've only taken once) is below the 25th percentile. I'm planning on re-taking it at least once, but I'm worried it still won't be good enough. I have some good extra curriculars and achievements (two published stories, six years of theater and singing, currently directing a play that I wrote with local actors, attorney in mock trial, etc.). Anyway, this brings me to my question: Princeton is the only school on my list that requires subject tests, but I haven't taken or studied for any because I didn't think I needed to. I figured I would focus on closer academic reaches like Emory and NYU. But now that I'm putting my list together, I really wish that Princeton could be on it. Should I take the tests for the heck of it, or just leave it because I'll most likely be rejected anyway?5 replies
