I currently have a 3.869 weighted GPA and my unweighted GPA at the end of sophomore year was a 3.67 (i'm not sure what it is calculated with junior year). My SAT score is around 1340. I've already taken the SAT multiple times, but it hasn't rose much. Since it doesn't go up much, I'm thinking of switching to the ACT. I took a practice test and without studying, I got a 29. Do you think I should switch to the ACT? or is it too late? If I take the ACT, I have one shot at it before I put in applications for early decision. My #1 college choice is UGA, but I'm not sure if I can get in right now. My GPA isn't that high, so I was hoping for a good SAT score, but that isn't the case. Any advice would be appreciated

    How much SAT preparation did you do?

    I'm not sure if this helps, but extracurricular wise, I've been an assistant teacher at a foreign language school and I've been in many outside bands.

    I've studied for the SAT since junior year, so about a bit over a year now? @DadTwoGirls

    An SAT of 1340 would certainly enable you to get into any number of schools.

    Why not start to look at schools that you can get into given your current stats?
