I flunked the Verbal SAT

<p>did worse than last time. I'm screwed right?</p>

<p>what why. some schools take composites.</p>

<p>how can you find out which schools look at composites and which dont? Is there a way?</p>

<p>Some schools don't say that directly but most do. Your drop has to be SEVERE for them to be suspicious. Look at it this way: your SATs cannot get worse.</p>

<p>Would dropping from 700 V to 680 V really matter? My math went up though, from 640 to 720.</p>

<p>you're absolutely fine</p>

<p>The thing is I did studied alot and did really well on all my practice tests (700+). Then on Oct 9th, something happened and I ended up REALLY bombing it. Is there anymore hope to get into the top schools?</p>

<p>That depends a lot on how your ECs are and probably on where you draw the line for "top schools." "Top schools" is a category that's a lot more broad than people usually think. </p>

<p>And also, there are a handful of really great schools (Bowdoin is one I can think of right now) that don't require SATs at all. You might look into those if your scores are horrible. (Keep in mind, though, that this board will really skew your perception of what is good and what isn't.)</p>
