Should I retake SAT II Test?

apogenericapogeneric Registered User Posts: 4 New Member
Hello all. I'm looking to apply to Georgetown this fall. Because they require three subject tests, I was wondering if I should retake chem. I took the bio test in 9th grade and got and 800, took the bio test in 10th grade and got a 720, and took the math 2 this may and got an 800. I know Georgetown requires that you send all of your scores, so should I just hope the other 2 scores are high enough to distract from the slightly less impressive score? Or should I retake it in August and risk doing worse?

    I'm assuming there's a typo here and that you got a 720 on chem.

    Even so I wouldn't retake as there really isn't a need to. Most colleges only look at your top 2 subject test scores and you have them both at 800 so you're golden. The only college that will even see that 720 chem is Georgetown and frankly I doubt it'll make much of a difference in admissions. If you want and feel you have extra free time then I suppose you can warrant a retest.

    I agree that there is no need to retake, but I disagree with the above. If you want to take an hour plus driving time to retake, go for it. But spending any time on test prep is time that would be better spent on just about anything else, IMO.
