should I submit SAT subject scores that are only average?

I took the subject tests in math 2 and us history and did ok but not great.

Math 2: 750
(I took this three years after I took algebra 2 and I skipped pre-cal; so trig is my weak point)
US History: 730

I'm wondering if I should submit these scores. The rest of my stats are pretty high and I don't know if these would drag me down. I will definitely submit them for the schools that "recommend" them, but I'm not sure if I should for the schools that "consider" them.
I plan on majoring in business. I have listed some schools I'm interested in below.


UT Austin
Carnegie Mellon (2 scores recommended)
UPenn
WashU
University of Michigan Ann Arbor
Emory University
University Wisconsin – Madison
University of Indiana – Bloomington
University of Illinois Urbana Champaign

    If you scored below average, the move is you probably shouldn't send them as they might actually end up hurting your app. However, your scores are definitely at that average range, for most of your schools on your list, and I think it will show that you took initiatives and tried taking more than just SAT 1.

    Another factor is APs or IBs. If you've taken AP Calc BC or History and got a 5, I would not worry too much about submitting or not since a 5 in Calc BC will probably overshadow your SAT II Math. If you haven't taken AP Calc, I would just submit your SAT score so that they at least know you have average (or above) math skills (especially since you're going for business).

    I might, but only if two are strongly recommended. Otherwise, it may hurt your application
