SAT Question?

<p>I've gotten myself into a little bit of a problem. My parents advised me to take the SAT I every year of high school. My scores improved a little bit from freshman year to sophomore year, and I had a significant jump my Junior year with a 1360/1970. I'm wondering if it would be smart to retake the SAT one more time to improve the score? Primarily because a lot of schools have cutoffs for programs at 1400. Would taking it 4 times look desperate if the time in between the tests is so far way? Or should I just boost my application with the SAT II's?</p>

<p>I'm planning on applying to Mich State, UMiami, Ohio State, Colorado College, and Miami (Oxford). Thanks for the help!</p>

<p>this is a special situation, but I would say take it if:
you have the time
you KNOW you can improve
you can prepare well enough to improve in all subject areas
Most colleges (or at least the ones you listed) won't really take freshman year SATs all too seriously.</p>

<p>Be aware that the colleges you list do not use SAT subject tests for admission except Colorado may give them some consideration if submitted (it does not require or recommend them). Moreover none of them will be concerned that you took the SAT four times. Thus I agree with the poster above particularly since you have colleges like Miami where the amount of merit aid depends partly on SAT scores and the higher math/reading scores you have the more you might get.</p>

<p>...that really sucks. Uhm, first, check score choice policies. I would probably retake, but I definitely would if most of those schools accept school choice.</p>
