I'm an international student in her senior year who wishes to apply to US colleges. I took the sats in january and got 1760, however, after taking the test I realized that I could improve a lot and so I registered to take it again in June. This is when it starts to get complicated. Recently I was in a car crash and fractured my right collarbone and foot, so I can't walk nor write. I was still going to take the exam (a bit crazy) but my doctor said I may be getting surgery in the next week so I won't be able to take it. So, I contacted collegeboard and they said the best thing I could do was to move my test date to october. I told my college counselor about this and he said that I'll only be able to apply with my first SAT score (?). I'm really confused/mad and I don't know what to do. I wished to start college around february 2014 but I thought that if I took the sats again I would be able to send that score. I'm really hesitant to apply with the first one since I've been told that a 2000 score opens a lot more doors than what I have (prior to the accident I was getting 1900 on practice tests and felt that I still could improve). Also, I wouldn't mind to start college in october 2014, but is it worth it? My question is: Is my college counselor right and am I only able to apply with my first score? Could I apply in november with my second score, and if so, when would I start college? Any tips?
