Question about how colleges count the SAT

<p>This is something I bet a lot of people here know, but I always clarification, so any help is appreciated. Basically I want to know what schools will count the highest SAT verbal and math, if they were taken at different times. For example, my first SAT was M:800 and V:670. Then, two weeks ago I go M:720 and V:730. I know the UC schools will only take the single sitting of 1470, but for schools like MIT, Duke and Stanford, will they view my score as 1530? I have conflicting reports, as people said they will, adn others said only Stanford does. Can anyone confirm which private schools will take the highest score of each category? Thanks.</p>

<p>I think the three of them take highest combined, but you can always check on their websites.</p>
