big difference in ERW/Math, what's the best strategy?
Got SAT Try #1 scores today for D21 (a junior.) ERW 780, Math 670 for 1450. She has not had a math class in 6 months but is starting one in November (IB HL Math Analysis) and I imagine her math score will increase somewhat for the May SAT. Not sure how much, she's targeting a 700+. She is looking at elite LACs and LACs a notch below elite, T50ish (acceptance rates range from 15-50% and her 1450 is generally in the top half or much higher, but the math is more like 25% - 50%.) So, my question is for her retake should she study for both subjects or focus exclusively on math? Should she even take the ERW portion? How do Adcoms really view this? All her target schools superscore and only one is not score choice. I just don't know if they *really* superscore to the point where she can totally blow off ERW. All test dates coincide with something else like IB exams, finals, etc. so getting ERW off her plate could have its benefits. Thank you.14 replies
