SAT Scores up to par?

<p>I'll post my full resume later, but I just visited Yale and wanted to know if the math score will be a problem</p>

<p>Reading- 750
Math- 690
Writing-780
Total- 2220/ 1440</p>

<p>Thank you for your input</p>

<p>You're looking okay. But not good. Often top tier universities like Yale will scrutinize your math section the most. So having a math score under 700 is definitely bad. For top tier universities that is.</p>

<p>from what I know, SAT scores after a certain point won't make or break an applicant
that being said, I am a member of the class of 2014 with a combined 2130 SAT (750M, 690W, 690R) - so don't stress too much about your scores and focus on your essays/application in general instead.</p>

<p>What ethnicity are you?</p>

<p>White male</p>

<p>I have very good ECs and essays and will post a full resume in a few days, I just wanted to know if my scores will qualify me as a competitive applicant</p>

<p>Yes, they will.</p>

<p>You definitely should retake the SAT to improve your Math score</p>

<p>Don't bother retaking unless you plan to apply SCEA.</p>

<p>This is a great score!!! You don't need a higher Math score unless your intended major is related to the sciences. Don't bother retaking ;) You're just fine</p>

<p>2300+ to be really competitive.</p>

<p>I plan to go into biological sciences, but my chemistry grades in an honors class are above 97</p>

<p>I feel like you should retake it, once. But only if you think you can improve your math score by 50+ points (a difficult feat). I'm not a guru in this area, but that's my two cents.</p>

<p>I don't think your SAT scores will hurt you. You're within range....
Take them again in October to see if you can break the 700 mark in math, but don't stress. Test scores are only used to make sure that you can handle the work. </p>

<p>(I am a member of the Class of 2014 and got in with very similar scores; math just below 700, reading and writing at almost 800)</p>

<p>Thank you for you advice. I actually retook my first sat and improved my math by 80 points so I'm not sure if I have any improvement left haha. Thank you for the input</p>

<p>Another strange coincidence? My 680 in math was actually an 80 point improvement from my first try.
If I were you, I'd get the official SAT prep book and work on the math sections under timed conditions.... then grade yourself and try to figure out why you got certain questions wrong.
You can forego prep on reading/writing.....</p>

<p>Hey not to jack your thread... but I definitely have a similar problem too.</p>

<p>First time on my SAT Math I got a 630, and this time I got a 680.</p>

<p>The thing is, I consider math my strongest subject. And my other scores reflect that.</p>

<p>ACT Math: 34
SAT Subject Test Math II: 790
AP Calc BC: 5
And I'm taking Calc 3 at the state university this fall. </p>

<p>Should I still consider retaking the SAT for my math score? (I got a 680 CR and 750 Writing by the way)</p>

<p>I think you should retake but not for math. Your numbers back math up as a strong suit, I go after the reading and if you go up in math it's a bonus. But be careful because after 3 tines your scores will bump</p>

<p>bump please???</p>
