Maths SAT Subject Test score good enough ?

<p>I received the results of Maths L2 subject test and I got a 720. I know this is a good score but two things worry me :</p>

<li>Is the score good enough for a computer science major applicant?</li>
<li>Is it good enough for an applicant from India, where everyone gets great Maths scores?</li>

<p>I <em>know</em> I will get better if I give it again, but is it worth it ?</p>

<p>Yeah .. If you can really improve , give it again because in India people tend to get 800 on this .. But subjects doesnt matter a lot .. So chill !! All the best</p>

<p>I'm an Indian American (First generation born). What I can say is that since you're from India you'll be competing against all of the India international applicants. While a 720 is good, there are A LOT of Asians with 800. You might not get into the best programs, but this score is solid to got a top public universities for computer technology. Harvard/Stanford--probably not.</p>

<p>"Is the score good enough for a computer science major applicant?"</p>

<p>Depends on your College list. Match this score to mid 50 percentile of SAT scores for those on your list.</p>

<p>one score will not sink you, it's totality of your application, at least for top schools. while higher scores may make you feel better, there are a lot of math2 720s at every top institution. so relax.</p>

<p>@norvasc6: Reality check=Top publics are no longer any different than privates (when were they diff? I don't know...I always kept top publics in high regards). They charge the same tuition as privates in this economy now and their admissions is selective as well and can doubly match the likes of ivies for internationals. A 720 will not be satisfactory enough OP even for a top public...their admission is pretty much the same for asians (I don't know about Gtech). I know for one that UVA's admission rate is pretty competitive for internationals and domestic students. An 800 is expected out of an international because the asian curriculum is uniform and is usually HL IB level.</p>

<p>Thanks for the replies everyone. I will give the SAT 2 again.</p>

<p>Damn, the competition is too good. :P</p>
