Presidential Scholarships--Taking SAT a fourth time

kat415kat415 Registered User Posts: 47 Junior Member
Hi,

Recently I have decided that Temple is my first choice school as a nursing major due to cost related circumstances. My only issue is my SAT score. I expected to raise my CR+M score to a 1420 superscore with the June SAT, but this did not happen, and I do not feel as if it accurately represented my abilities for my 3rd SAT. I am a rising senior, and my question is: Will it look bad if i take the SAT for a fourth time in October and send this score to only temple, hoping to raise my CR+M superscore to the neccessary 1420 to obtain the presidential scholarship OR is it worth it to meet the scholarship criteria? I already have the 3.8 GPA.

These are my scores so far:
January:
CR: 670
M: 590
W: 720
COMPOSITE: 1980 CR+M: 1260

March:
CR: 740
M: 650
W: 710
COMPOSITE: 2100 CR+M: 1390

June:
CR: 630
M: 630
W: 680
COMPOSITE: 1940 CR+M: 1260

SUPERSCORE:
CR: 740
M: 650 (I think I can raise this)
W: 720
COMPOSITE: 2110 CR+M: 1390

Thank you!!

    it is worth it to take a 4th time,. i don;t think Temple cares or holds it against you if you take it a 4th time, work on pulling math score up as high as you can since you are nursing major, i have heard teh nursing major is hard to get into, even wiht good stats. i think your cr is fine and would not prep for it at all on next SAT, assuming Temple superscores. i think they do but check scholarship page to make sure. to clarify, don't prep for cr at all on next SAT, prep like crazy for teh math portion.
