Retake??

<p>Hi guys, this has been bothering me for sometime so I thought I'd get some advice. I got my June SAT results back and got a 2260 (760, 760, 740). This was my first try, so I could still retake in october. However, I was aiming for a 2300+ so that I wouldn't have to worry about it ever again - that didn't happen (due probably to one stupid mistake in math which I didn't think I made). Now I have to choose whether to spend time (about a monthish) studying for the SAT, or to invest that time into other things I have going on (online classes, internship, volunteer work etc.). I know I could probably improve CR and W a little, but math seems slightly unpredictable as one mistake cost 40 points, and I didn't even think I had done anything wrong.</p>

<p>Should I retake the SAT or should I invest time in other activities (ECs) which I think I will learn a lot more from?</p>

<p>Personally, I would advise you to work on your ECs</p>

<p>That's what I want to do, but I'm not sure if it's what I should do.</p>

<p>Yes, definetley work on your EC's, since you're also not guaranteed a 800 in math next time either.</p>

<p>I would study a bit, break 2300 and then go work on your EC's, 2300+ will (obviously) look better to colleges than 2260.
All in all, it depends on where you are applying</p>
