SAT again?

<p>i may or may not take the SAT again in October. I'm shooting for EA, everything else is pretty much in order so i won't post all of my stats on here again. i got a 33 on the ACT and a 1380 on the SAT. i know they don't really match up. i'm confident i could get the SAT over a 1400 through the math. should i worry about this? also, ND asks you to send all the dates of your tests and then my guidance counselor tells me that since they're my tests i can choose who gets to see the scores. anyone have any info on this?</p>

<p>when you send your SAT to all the schools where you apply, they see your scores for every test you've taken.</p>

<p>i also had a 1380, and i had a 32 on the ACT. i'm retaking both, even though the ACT's just for kicks because everyone gets the fee waivered at my school (yaaay urban public!). i figure you may as well give yourself another shot to be as competitive as you can.</p>

<p>just curious, what was your SAT breakdown?</p>

<p>I believe DancingFeet is correct, that Notre Dame will receive all the scores (from College Board, I don't know about the ACT) of your tests. But remember: they will only count the highest score you score on each section (for the SAT only).</p>

<p>Why don't you just send your ACTs and not send your SATs? Your 33 is a strong score... Couldn't you send that & not worry about taking the SAT again?</p>

<p>hey jonoam</p>

<p>If I was in your shoes, I would not send the SATs at all. Your ACT is great, and is a very competitive score.. even for EA</p>

<p>I would forget about the SATs, and possibly take the ACT one more time in October.</p>

<p>Good Luck</p>

<p>I agree why sendthe SAT ? If you are going to send it take it one more time but study first my daughter went from 1410 to 1460 with the Oct SAT</p>

<p>if i had to send all my scores (on the application it says to enter all the dates of the all the tests you have taken) then i wanted to get that SAT higher so they didn't look at the ACT as a fluke. breakdown of SAT was
Reading 680
Math 700
Writing 770 (Too bad ND doesn't care about that)</p>

<p>Your ACT is great for ND and so I wouldn't worry about the SAT too much. If you feel you can do significantly better I say go for it, but even if you don't then that's fine, a 33 can get you in anywhere.</p>

<p>I sent ND a 33 ACT and a 1310 SAT. Don't worry about it.</p>

<p>I don't think they penalize you for lower scores. They just weigh in the highest.</p>

<p>I'm with Tim_nd08</p>

<p>Your ACT converts to a 1460-1500 SAT. Forget the SAT. You scored an average of 100 point higher on the ACT. Why would you take the SAT again? If anything, take the ACT again. </p>

<p>First, I would like to say a 33 is an excellent score. However, if you are determined to take another test to improve your score, push for a 34 on the ACT-especially if you are thinking EA. Look at last year's admits test stats-that extra point on the ACT can really help you. </p>

<p>I wouldn't even send the SAT results.</p>
