help! - should i retake my sat 1 in nov?

<p>I just got my oct sat 1 score back. 690 v and 760 m.</p>

<p>I am applying early to Princeton and here are my sat 2 scores, 740 writing and 800 800 780 for math chem and physics. I have also registered for the novemeber testing date. do you think i should try to retake my sat 1 and try to get over 1500 or should i leave my score as it is? </p>

<p>For my other parts of the app, i have very good recs, solid ECs, and solid grades at school with the most challenging course load.</p>

<p>I have 2 weeks to prepare for it if i were to do it again in nov. What would you do in my case? </p>

<p>I just don't THINK 1450 is high enough for ED at Princeton even though it is in the mid 25% - 75% range...</p>

<p>Thank you for your input.</p>

<p>how many times have you taken the SATI? Its best not to exceed three times</p>

<p>this is my first time..</p>

<p>well, my main concern is that if i were to retake it, i might not get a lot higher since i only have 2 weeks to prepare and i MIGHT even get lower. (for the oct one, i spent about 6 weeks). </p>

<p>My other option is to retake it in january so i could study over xmas break... i just don't know if i should retake it in nov and HOPE that i do better or wait till Jan. But i want to give everything i have for my ED at princeton and hope i get in. My EC, recs, summer programs, contest placement, sat 2 scores, class rank and course loads are all looking very promising. It's only the SAT1 i'm worried about..</p>

<p>I'm going to bum off this thread:</p>

<p>I took the Oct SAT and got a 1510, but on all my practice tests under test conditions I got 1570-1600, with 4 of the 7 tests a 1600. So, I know that I can do better. Everyone I've talked to about my score says that I just freaked myself out too much by overpreparing and getting too worked up (also, air conditioning was out and i'm in florida so it was about 85+ degrees with 90%+ humidity). If I took it in Nov, it would be my third time. Should I retake considering my practice tests scores?</p>

<p>sure, but its a bit late to sign up for the november test date.</p>

<p>I mean standby</p>
