SAT Score Clarification and Writing Help Needed

SAT: 750 CR 800 M 650 W - 2200

I'm a junior and taking the SAT one more time in October in hopes to increase CR and especially W.

Will top colleges prioritize CR+M more than the CR+M+W, or does this low W score put me at a disadvantage amongst applicants, regarding test scores, in the top twenty universities in the US?

Any tips to help me with W would be GREATLY appreciated. A pattern I've found during studying (and then reviewing what I got wrong) is that 99% of the questions I get wrong on the MC are ones I immediately understand why I got it wrong and the what the rule behind the right answer. Does that indicate that I should drill myself more on the rules since I recognize all of them but fail to pick a several consistently?

Thanks in advance!

    Yep. Good luck--and congrats on terrific CR and M scores.
