<p>Note on SATs:
I sent in all 3 scores for the places I'm applying early (UMD, UVA, WPI, Purdue) and I will send take 2 and 3 for the others. My only worry is that even though I scored a 700 on math, they will think lesser of it because of my two lower scores. I do have the 700 Math II to back it up. I don't know what happened on take 1 and 2... I'm a good math student. I'm just glad I finally broke 700s in math.</p>

<p>I do have a downward trend in grades, but an upward trend in course difficulty. I went from taking 2 honors freshman year (all As), to 4 honors sophomore year (half As, half Bs), to 5 honors and 1 AP junior year (all Bs, A- in the AP) to 5 APs Senior year.</p>
