For many reasons, I decided not to do Early Decision at the school I wanted to, and I am happy with the decision. I'll apply regular anyways, and my options are open.
However, this decision opened up the chance for me to take the Oct.9 SAT and Nov.SAT.
I have not prepared at all for the SAT ever since June, when I got my high-score, and decided to do ED to that particular school.
Now that I have decided against ED, and I am happy with this choice, should I do standby testing for the October9 SAT, or wait until the November test date? I am very sure if I go into the October test date as a standby, I would not be able to score as high as I did in June. However, with a little studying, I may do better on the November test date.
I just don't want the colleges to wonder why I didn't take the SAT in October when I took in November.
