Worth it to take SAT?

I already have a 35 on the ACT. I’m planning to take the SAT in a few weeks with little studying. If I get a low score could this hurt me?

    My daughter is considering the opposite...-she has a 1570 on the SAT and is thinking about taking the ACT. Probably not worth it.

    Only for schools that require you to send all sittings of all tests - I’m note sure one of these even exists.

    Or if, for some silly reason, you decide to send it.

    Unless you have a 34.5-rounded-up-35 and for some reason think you’ll do better on the SAT than a second sitting of the ACT, this seems to be a waste of time.

    35 ACT is great! No need to take SAT, use that time to take subject tests if the schools you are looking at recommend subject tests.

    Don't waste your time!
    No school is going to reject you because you didn't score a 36.
    Instead they'll pick apart your resume and grades.
    You've won the test scores part of the application. Now focus on creating a compelling story that will be compelling to write about when it comes to essays.
