These were all my best scores as the last time I got 740 in M, 620 in R, and 600 in W. However I know for a fact I can do better on Writing (I have taken numerous practice tests and always seem to score 690) and while I think I can do better on the other two I am happy with those scores.

Retaking in 4 days SAT II's as I got only a 620 on US History and 660 on Math Level 2.

My schools:
Claremont Mckenna (math, reading only)
University of Washinton Honors (in state)
Northwestern (math, reading only)
Wesleyan (the only one that says they look at the SAT II's)
Colgate (math, reading only I think)

    Iraqi and Caucasion.

    Caucasian is an umbrella term for anyone who is not black, hispanic, native american or from the far east.
