"Send scores" on college board?

<p>Whenever I log onto college board, it says "Don't forget to send scores!"
Should I be sending my SAT scores to colleges now? I'm a senior in the fall.
Can anyone tell me how this whole thing works? Like I press send score and the college sees it? I'm planning to take the SAT again in October and get a higher score, so should I wait until then?</p>

<p>I’m not 100% sure, but you can send your scores to colleges and they’ll open a file for you. It shows them that you’re interested. When you register you can choose which colleges you want CB to send to when your scores are ready. If the college already has your scores then you don’t need to send them with your application. Or you could wait until you apply to send in your school. This is my impression of the process.</p>
