Question about SATs

<p>I have a fairly high SAT score (2280), but my individual section scores are somewhat inconsistant. My math is a 790 and my writing is an 800, but my CR is only a 690. Will this harm my chances for admission at some of the more selective schools even though my writing and math are above, or toward the upper end of, the schools' averages?</p>

<p>Thanks for your help!!</p>

<p>Depends. Liberal Arts schools may take CR into consideration more. I don't think it would be too bad an idea to retake to increase CR if that's the case.</p>

<p>CR is the most important score unless you're aiming for a tech school, and even the top among those have very high CR averages. Many or most classes in college require strong reading and all require strong comprehension at top colleges, so yes, the CR score is very important.</p>

<p>But is a 690 bad enough to taint the significance of my high other scores?</p>

<p>I did get a 5 on my AP Lang and comp. Just though I'd add that.</p>
