SAT 1460 for intl. student. worth retaking?

<p>firstly, i'd like to apologise for another one of these threads!</p>

<p>i just got 740M/720V for my first sitting of the SAT I. the maths score is a little disappointing but oh well. I haven't taken SAT IIs yet but hopefully expect 750-800 on all three. </p>

<p>As an international student i was wondering whether i should retake my SAT I in december, i'll aim for around 1530 this time. </p>

<p>If all other parts of my application are excellent (straight As, extra-curricular, teachers eval, etc) then will a uni like Harvard be likely to 'look down' upon my 1400s SAT score?</p>

<p>thanks for your time.</p>

<p>no need to. Both verbal and math are above 700, that's good enough</p>

<p>You should definitely try to raise your score. If you are going for RD, december score will be counted. And Also most ppl take 2-3 times SAT1. Unless you have a 1600 or close to it first time out, taking it again can only help. Don't last poster pulled your legs saying "that's good enough".</p>

<p>because that is good enough.
700+ is all you need, instead spend more time on your essays</p>

<p>arh. mixed views. well, guess i have to decide today since its the last day for registration. mhm..... oh, but thx for replying anyway!</p>

<p>Yes, som is trying to raise similar score for a real chance in Harvard.</p>
