<p>I realize that if I have a chance at getting into MIT, I would have to get my SAT up. My math is pretty much set. 800.
My reading and writing is... worse than ideal. What can I do to keep up with my busy school works as well as reading and memorizing vocab at a pace that would get me something like a 2250 on my SAT in may/june?</p>
<p>by the way, since I planned so late for the SAT, is it good to take it once this summer and then once again in august? Then the scores would come out just as the early registrations are due for MIT, Berkley, and other good colleges. Is my plan a on-the-edge risky question mark, or just a freaking disaster?</p>
<p>But yea, please tell me how I can prepare for the SAT. I really want to aim for a 2300+, but I suck so much at reading right now it just seems impossible.</p>
<p>SATs aren't offered in August.</p>
<p>You could take it in October, and possibly even November and have scores in time for early application programs.</p>
<p>LOL, I saw the title and thought, 'Don't worry- everybody thinks that at first."</p>
<p>Don't sweat the Writing. MIT doesn't care about it...unless they've dramatically changed their policy in the last six months. You could call the admissions office to confirm, I guess. But historically they've been vocal against the W section and have said in polls that they don't consider the W score. Calculate your score out of 1600 (CR/M).</p>
<p>I'd think of taking June/Oct or June/Nov.</p>
<p>P.S. You'd get better advice re: CR if you told us your current score: how many points do you need to gain?</p>
Calculate your score out of 1600 (CR/M).
what if your writing score was a 200 :D</p>
<p>so guys. I know there's one in october. the score would come out in november, when I can receive the (hopefully better) score and put it on my application. Just in time for early registration.</p>
<p>How do I study for it though? Any useful suggestions that worked for you are helpful to me.</p>
<p>to study for CR? read books like pride and prejudice, or whatever..stuff that uses good vocabulary, stuff that is in a range of topics (since reading passages are from a variety of texts), read good newspapers: ie, Nytimes, New Yorker..etc... really, it helps a lot. and practices sections and everything..do whatever you think will help you, but yeah....hope that helps</p>
<p>math, if your set with that, you'll be fine i suppose</p>
