hey guys, I’m applying for the UC’s, and with that last SAT coming up before the deadline I would like some advice:
Math IIC: 780
Which would help more for getting me into those upper-echelon UC’s? I’m choosing between retaking the SATI and SATII Physics and Writing. My main target is UCSD, and although my SATI is relatively low, it is at their average (which is 1298 i think), and I would take a 50 point boost between 2 SATIIs over a 80-100 point boost in the SATI- am I correct in thinking this? Either way, straight 700’s on my app will look cool
If i DO take the SATII’s, is it possible for me to tell the admissions guys that i got that 1310 at the start of my Junior year, and sort of suggest that my SATII scores are more indicative of my testing ability?
I also heard that there is a sort of course exemption bonus that comes with a 700 writing score; whether or not this is true will greatly affect my decision. Regardless, i will retake the I in december for the private schools.
