SAT dilemma


<p>I got deferred by Yale. Anyway, I was wondering which SAT to take for the january sitting. </p>

<p>For SAT 1, I got
Critical Reading: 740
Math: 800
Writing: 730</p>

<p>So, I'm wondering whether I should try to boost my SAT 1 score. On the other hand, I'm applying for Biomedical Engineering but in my A level prelims, I got a B for Bio. And I did not take Bio SAT II or Bio S paper so they can't really judge my Bio aptitude.</p>

<p>So what do you think? Should I take SAT1 or SAT II Bio?</p>

<p>Please reply fast.</p>


<p>What was your SAT bio score?? Your sat 1 already seems very high!</p>

<p>I didn't take SAT II for Bio. I just took it for Math II, Physics and Chem.</p>

<p>what were your other sat II scores?</p>

<p>If you want to do Biomedical Engineering, it would be good to evidence some of your biology aptitude by taking the January Bio SAT II. Your SAT 1's look high enough already...unless you wanted to boost the Writing score, which isn't that important.</p>

<p>Math II: 800
Physics: 780
Chemistry: 800</p>

<p>I wouldn't think its necessary to take bio, your sat II scores are already very high!</p>

<p>Guys, if we are taking our 3rd SAT II in Juanuary, do we rush scores?</p>

<p>no u dont have to</p>

<p>Nanashi i suppose u're a singaporean? Which jc are u from?
Anw, i think both your SAT scores are fine... I wouldn't bother to take either if I were you... then again if you insist on taking something, my suggestion would be SAT II. Take Bio and retake Physics. 780 may be high but considering our 'kiasu' mentality and the crazy fact that most Singaporean applicants get 3x800 for SAT IIs you might want to bump up physics to 800...</p>

<p>anw, i wouldn't worry too much about the bio interest/aptitude thing. US colleges generally don't care about your prospective major... though I think Yale shows some preference for girls who are into sciences/engineering. it would definitely help if you have any research stuff... but i dun really think taking SAT 2 bio makes much of a difference...</p>

<p>I am retaking the physics SAT II because in my jc, the average for physics is 791. Guess which jc that is? I'll give you a hint. It's not an institution.</p>

<p>lol rjc? it was 790 on my year's college profile though...</p>

<p>I'd definitely recommend retaking the SAT.</p>

<p>i can't tell if you're sarcastic or not...</p>
