Do I look like I'm obsessed with scores?
I am a junior, and Stanford + Cornell are my dream schools. Last December I took the ACT for the first time, and got a 35 on it. The only problem is that it was the ACT without writing -- I totally didn't expect I would get such a score on my first try so I took it just to get myself familiar with the test. Now I have to take it again next year because some schools require ACT with writing.
My SAT Score ( last month, first time, one-sitting) is 2230 ( M 800, CR 690, W 740 ) and I'm taking it again in my senior year too. Will I give the admission officers the impression that I care too much about scores? One of my friend advises me to move on to other parts of the application, but I'm scared that a 2230 SAT will put me in a disadvantageous position. I hope the admission officers could look at my 35 instead of the 2230, but my 35 ACT is without writing. I'm also afraid that the next time I take ACT, I might make some silly mistakes and score less than that.
I appreciate every advice. Thank you !!
P/s: I'm planning to take SAT Subject tests (Math Level 2 + Chem) this May.
