I have taken the SAT twice. Each time, I did not realize that sending my scores to my high school would be a bad thing. Now, I've learned that my school lists ALL SAT scores on the transcript and refuses to take them off (they claim they aren't allowed to remove SAT scores).
I'm really mad now because I got a 2180 the first time and a 2350 after a little bit of prep. Obviously I'd like to only send in the 2350. I did better on each section (so I wouldn't superscore by sending the 2180).
I just don't want an adcom to be swayed negatively if they see the lower score on my transcript :(
What should I do? They say they only consider the highest scores but I'm still concerned that it could give the person reading my app a less positive view of me. I have pushed my counselor to take the 2180 off but she will not budge.
Also, should I send official reports of both scores? I don't want them to consider the 2180 (even if they'll see it), so should I just send the official report of the 2350? Or will that make it look like I'm trying to hide a score? I know I'm probably overthinking this but I am just so stressed out right now.
