Should I take SAT I again for IVY league schools? [Transfer]

<p>Hello everyone!
I am a physics major student, hoping to transfer to ivy.</p>

<p>I was planning to apply to ivy leagues, and found out that I had to take SAT exams for some of the universities that I planned to apply even as a transfer.</p>

<p>Because, I started studying at the last minute, I didn't find much time to study (in the midst of semester too), I did not do as well as I wanted to on my SAT I.</p>

<p>For SAT II (Taken in Nov,2011)
I fortunately received 800 on both Math IIC and Physics exam.</p>

<p>As for SAT I (Taken in Dec, 2011), I received 610/750/700 (Reading/Math/Writing).</p>

<p>I have one more opportunity to take the exam on Jan 28th, and I am not sure if I should.</p>

<p>Although I lived in the State for about 10 years now, I am also an international student.
I have 3.98 (out of 4.0) at my current community college and had 3.89 (out of 4.0) in my high school year.</p>

<p>I know that I have really good recommendation, for my physics instructors are quite fond of me.</p>

<p>As for extracurricular activities, I am an amateur astronomer and I do independent researches and publish papers as well. I am also a physics club president and will also be starting research at UCI.</p>

<p>I think I have a pretty good chance if I bump up my SAT I score, but I think people in this forum will be more knowledgeable than I am, so I politely ask for your advice.</p>

<p>Thank you so much for taking your interest and time to read my post.</p>

<p>Oh.. and I am planning to apply to 9 private universities. (some are not private)</p>

Pomona College
Cornell University
Amherst University</p>

<p>Please be frank and harsh, for it would be more helpful to hear candid opinion than deluding appeals.</p>

<p>Honestly, you don't have anything to lose by taking the SAT and you seem to believe you can do better. You might regret it if you don't take it again thinking you could have scored better and gotten into another school that you would have preferred. I'd say get studying & good luck! :)</p>
