SAT Dilemma

<p>So I got an 800 W and 800 Cr, but only a 700M.</p>

<p>My counselor told me that I can't even apply to some schools that require atleast a 710 M. Is this true?? (Harvard, Carleton) I though anything above a 2240 was stellar. Please help.</p>

<p>I am 90% sure that your counselor is wrong? 2300 is a great score and especially if your math marks in school are very strong I think they'll excuse the 700 on the SAT...</p>
