    if they only need two then you don't need a third

    Personally, I would just take the test, but you won't need the third.

    I think Cornel wants Math 2 not Math 1.

    If you don't feel ready for math I, then take three (you might as well, right?). Most of the schools you're applying to will use the two highest scores anyway, so it's more advantageous to take three than to take two if you really want to improve your scores.

    Your scores are pretty much already good enough though. Bio could be higher, but that's about it.

    I prob got around a 650.. just found however cornell needs a math sat 2 for there human ecology school..

    Is it better to cancel the score and send my 31 ACT (w/writing) to schools that need math or 3 sat II's or recieve the 650 and send both.. (i omitted like 11 and am guessing i got another 2 or 3 wrong)
