    I think your SAT sub scores are not too bad for even Stern standard. Are you Korean or Korean American? Then taking Korean would not really give you an additional boost despite the decent score. Many many Chinese or Chinese Americans take and submit the Chinese sub and colleges dont always appreciate it. Consider taking SAT Lit or Lang. Or pick any subject you feel comfortable. If you have 3 strong subject scores, submit them instead of SAT.
