So What's Good Enough For "one and done" SAT (Not to Retake Again)

My sib (sophomore) is now in the process, and has just gotten SAT scores. New SAT (1600)--which is different from old SAT (2400). Sib. made a 1520 on first try. Sib was happy and does not want to retake, but it seems like that 1520 on new exam concords to like a 2250 on the old exam I took.This is good but not stellar for an unhooked kid. Not a "one and done" score. For non-hooked kid, do you take it again? What is the new "one and done" level for SAT if you are seeking T10-20 tier schools (Duke, Rice, Vandy, etc.). I think sib needs to take one more time.
