Does superscoring look bad for the top colleges such as the ivy leagues?

Hi I recently got a 1540 on the SAT (770 Math 770 Verbal). I normally get an 800 on the math portion but i missed a few questions this time. I was wondering if I should take the SAT again to try to superscore it to a 1570. Is it worth it and would it look bad on colleges such as the Ivy Leagues? I am aiming for the top colleges.

    You are asking the wrong question. Instead of asking if superscoring looks bad (hint: it does not bcos they accept it), you should be asking if retaking a 770 for an 800 is a good idea, and that answer is No.

    If you want to demonstrate your math acumen, take Math 2.
