The 1500+ 'sweet spots'
I scored a 1520 on my SAT on my first attempt, but my counselor feels that I should do a re-take to try and superscore into a 1540+. They claim this is to stay in a 'sweet spot' for admissions. I currently want to do a biochemistry major, but I'm on the fence about re-taking. If I want to apply to schools like Columbia, Rice, etc. will I need to reach the aforementioned 'sweet spot' for SAT scores?17 replies
