<p>I've only taken the SAT's once, and I promised myself if I got 700+, then this would be it, and I wouldn't torment myself any longer.
I got an 800 in critical reading, a 700 in math, a 710 in writing.</p>
<p>I've also gotten a 750 on the Math I and 740 on the Math II, 780 on U.S. History and 700 on Spanish.</p>
<p>I'm applying to top caliber colleges (Yale, Brown, Amherst, BU, NYU), so I need good test scores, but is it worth it? Do my 740 and 750 somehow make up for the 700?</p>
<p>I have extreme test anxiety, as I know many people do, so I really don't want to take the test again. Also, I don't want to risk having any 600's on my application (I know they look at the top score, but still, they see the others). However, I think I am capable of mid-700's on both the writing and math, but then I probably wouldn't get an 800 on critical reading (again, I know they count your highest score, but there's something psychological about having the 800).</p>
<p>Any help would be very much appreciated.
