Ugh, 720 in World History.

>w> Oh well. I'll get 800s in the Spanish ones (native speaker here :D).

Is a 720 really that bad though? CC has high expectations, but what will colleges think if I give them that score?

    Try to get at least 750

    I quote
    Depends where you want to go and what your major will be.
    If you want to go to a school where a 720 is above average or average its fine, but if you want to be a poly sci major, international studies major or history major, I recommend retaking. Its 82nd percentile in the nation so not bad at all.

    Colleges dont look at or even recieve percentiles for SAT 2 scores ( From what I've heard), they look at the score. 700+ is competitve, with the exception of Math 2 where 750+ is competitive.
