710 SAT II's too low?

3. A ~2400/36 is a pretty little sticker on a Yale applicant. But that's it. A piece of plastic. It makes you look cool and special but only to a certain extent.

<p>There are only 300 students who make a perfect score on the SAT in a given year. The reason why its so impressive to the colleges is that you wonder how much else they know that was not asked</p>

<p>@netthreat 300 students that make a 2400 in one sitting...or SuperScored?</p>

<p>That 297 figure provided by the College Board was not qualified very clearly; we don't exactly know how it was obtained. Most likely, however, it is derived from single-sitting scores.</p>

<p>Wow, this thread exploded while I was away! The he or she thing is odd to see, so I thought I'd clarify that I am a "she". I took my practice tests from the Princeton Review's Cracking the SAT Lit subject test. I feel like the English department at my school is really excellent, so maybe that's why I'm scoring high on Lit? Or perhaps PR's tests are too easy.</p>

<p>Thanks for everyone's input, and when I take Lit, I'll also retake my biology test. I definitely feel like I should have done better, so hopefully a second try will get me the results I want.</p>

Well, of course: no specific score is required. If the OP increases his or her scores, however, his or her chance of admittance will likewise increase.

<p>Worth repeating. I don't buy the "threshold" argument. There is no 700 or 750 threshold for SAT IIs beyond which increases in score are no longer relevant. So, to return to the OP's question, if you are confident you can boost your score, retake.</p>
