uneven standardized test scores

The downfall on both ACT and SAT is due to the timed aspect. not a fast reader...never will be.

ACT : R 31 M 34 W 34 S 24
31 composite

SAT: R 640 M 780 W 790

Previous sittings of both tests were practically the same

During non timed practice tests, (Science and English on ACT and Critical Reading on SAT,) scores are consistently around the 95th percentile. Practice has not improved these scores when up against the clock.

PSAT not that much different. Dont remember the exact numbers but R was significantly lower than M and W, yet still made Commended Student in spite of the poor show on R.

Other info. 3.98 UW: as many H and AP as schedule would allow. Weighted GPA is around 4.12 I think.

Excellent Leaderships: Several presidencies: Key Club, Student Council

Excellent ECs at National Level. Full Merit Scholarship to Study Russian in Russia last summer. Continuing with Russian during this school year with tutor

So concerned about these outlying scores. Any sense of how schools such as Georgetown for SFS, Tufts, Dartmouth, Yale, Brown would interpret?

    Remember, Georgetown only counts CR+M so you're actual score is 1420/1600, which translates to 2130/2400. By the way, Georgetown superscores the SAT so if you got a higher CR or M score on any of your other sittings they'll take those instead.
