I’m planning on applying to several highly selective colleges, such as Columbia and Johns Hopkins, so I was wondering whether anyone could provide any insight into how I should handle my standardized test scores. On the December 2015 SAT, I scored a 2050 (780 math, 670 reading, and 600 English), March 2016 SAT, I scored 1560 (790 math, 770 English/reading); and on the April 2016 ACT, I made a 33 (35 English, 36 math, 30 on reading and science, and 27 writing). If I’m interpreting the scores correctly, I’m thinking that I should submit just my new SAT scores to colleges that give the choice between the two. Is this an accurate assessment?
Also, I scored 780 US History, 770 Math 1, 800 Math 2, 790 Biology E, and 760 Chem on the SAT II tests, and I was wondering which scores I should submit if I can submit only so many (because there are some strange percentiles for the different scores among tests) or whether I need to hold any of these scores back from colleges (like my chem score)? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
