I scored 1540 on the SAT (R&W: 750, M: 790), but I only got 5/5/6 on the essay. However, I read that essay scores don't matter that much and since my score on the essay is average/slightly above average i think it's okay.
The real problem are the SAT Subject Tests: 650 (53rd percentile) on Literature and 720 (73rd percentile) on US history. I must have had a bad day since I was usually way better in practice, but there won't be other Subject Tests in my country so I have to live with the scores.
Now I wonder whether I should send the Subject Test Scores if I want to apply to highly selective schools. After all, at least I tried (isn't that better than not sending anything?) and scored in the higher half. Besides, as an international student, I had to learn everything by myself, so that might be considered?
I really don't know what do with these scores. Please let me now if you have any advise. Unfortunately, I have no guidance counselor I could ask for help.
