Basically, a lot of people say that taking the SAT 2 or 3 times is bad for colleges, because they will think you are obsessed/ too focused on grades...but here why I don't understand that argument:
1) if you take it multiple times and get a good score, it showsthe school it wasn't a one shot deal.
2) if you take it multiple times and improve, it shows that you are motivated enough to study harder and do better, OR it shows that something went wrong the first time that you did badly
3) I don't see how it is being obsessed if you simply want to show your true academic capability- maybe you were sick the first time, random thing X happened the second time, and neither score is truly representative of you.
4) it's a double standard- so taking the SAT's >2 times is *bad* because you are obsessed, but taking as many AP's, honors, and difficult courses in every possible area isn't bad?
can anyone else explain how universities look down on multiple tries at the SAT?
