I only got to take the SAT once and had a super bad day and got a 1460. I'm applying ED to UChicago through Questbridge but idk if I should submit my score. Is it better to submit it or to just opt out?

    Please take my answer with a grain of salt as I am not an AO.

    For Class of 2023, the middle 50% range of SAT is between 1500-1560.

    Your score will most likely not enhance your application. Then don't submit it.

    If you are a URM it might make sense to submit it. What does your HS GC say?

    My parents had to leave Afghanistan because we're a ethnic minority there. So yeah, I'd say I'm a URM. My college advisor says I should report my score, but I haven't asked my HS counselor.

    URM definitions are based on US federal guidelines. If you are from the Middle East, according to the Common Application, you are considered "White." However, you could probably include the information about being an ethnic minority in the additional information section of the Common Application.

    Hope that helps! Good luck with admissions!

    Technically Afghanistan is part of Central Asia, but I'm a bit wary to put Asian...

    Do you mean the Math and Reading/Writing scores? 750, 710 respectively. Why?

    @RaionShori - Section scores provide a lot more information than a combined score. Prior to Test-Optional, 750 was the lower end of the mid-range for SAT Math. EBRW has remained in the 730-770 range for the past few years (NCES data) so the 710 is a tad low but still respectable. Could be very wrong here but I've always suspected that Test Optional makes more sense for stellar applicants whose scores simply didn't support the rest of their application. Hard to understand how section scores north of 700 don't do that for any applicant, let alone a Questbridge (since most wouldn't have access to paid tutoring and other financial and time resources available to wealthier students).

    Good luck!
