Submitted poor SAT Bio M score--will this hurt my chances significantly?

livingandwritinglivingandwriting Registered User Posts: 29 Junior Member

I'm applying to Yale, Penn, and Harvard, and they all recommend/require that applicants submit at least 2 subject test scores. I took the tests in Math II and Bio M. I did very well on my Math II exam. However, I did significantly worse on my Bio M exam, scoring a 650. My parents made me submit this score to all three of the Ivy League schools I'm applying to, even though I would have preferred to just send Math II. At this point, all of my applications are finalized and submitted.

Will this significantly hurt my chances? I received a 1530 SAT score, have a few national awards in public speaking and poetry, and did an internship this past summer to research immune cells and spinal cord injury. My GPA is a 4.3 weighted. Thank you, in advance!
