I just received my scores yesterday and I earned a 2220. (760,720,740).
I'm applying ED and I'm expecting to get deferred. Would it make sense to take the December SAT especially if I think I'm capable of an 800 in CR (I was one question away) and a 750 in math (tough curve meant a -3 was a 720) and send them back to Brown if they are better so they can reevaluate me with RD and better scores?
My ECs are meh, no major awards, etc., so I really feel like I need to up my scores, but I'm not sure if I am being just the average worrying CCer.
I am also applying EA to UChicago, and if I get deferred/rejected from both, I plan on applying to Columbia, Princeton, Reed, Swarthmore, NYU, McGill and maybe a few others.
I should also probably mention that I am 6/69something at a large and very uncompetative, urban, and dirt poor school. (Not sure if that helps or hurts me.) My GPA is like a 3.94 UW and like a 4.79 W.
