SAT retake advice

<p>I have 4.0 gpa and am a competitive fencer, have work/volunteer experience, and take classes outside of school. I will be a senior next year and might apply ed, so the October SAT date is the only one left. Which is better to retake, the SAT or the subject tests?</p>

<p>May SAT scores
math: 700
cr: 720
writing: 760</p>

<p>subject tests
math 2: 690
chemistry: 660
lit: 650</p>

<p>I'm looking at schools like Middlebury, Haverford, and Carleton. </p>

<p>thanks!</p>

<p>I would say subject tests. Your SAT reasoning score is already pretty decent, but you may want to get a few of your subject tests up to 700+.</p>

<p>Also, how important are subject tests to these types of schools? I am also considering Bowdoin.</p>

<p>Subject tests are pretty important if they are related to your intended major. I would also retake the subject tests. At about 2200+ on SATs there isn't really a huge difference to admission offices. Try to hit the 700+ on subject tests.</p>

<p>Talk to the coaches and ask if they can get you in with current scores.</p>
