edited June 3 in SAT and ACT Tests & Test Preparation
Hi everyone. I am currently ending my junior year of high school and plan on applying to elite/ivy league school this fall. I took the SAT and scored a 1490 (780 English, 710 math). I had retaken in May, but went down. I wanted to retake the SAT in August, but the nearest test centers are 45+ miles away out of state (1 hour+ drive), and not in the safest communities. My alternative is to take the September ACT (I got a 32, 33 super score) or October SAT (but I will be in the middle of college app season, so I don't know how well I will do) at my own high school. In addition, I'm considering applying to UNC Chapel Hill (which is mid October early action) and other schools early action Nov. 1st, so I'm not sure if the scores will be sent on time. Considering all of these inconveniences, is it even worth retaking the SAT? What do you all think is the best option? Thanks in advance.13 replies
