Writing's killin me

My Math+Verbal SAT score is decent (1480) but my writing score is less than 700 (slightly above 650)...

Do any of you guys think that I should retake the SATs...? What scares me the most is the possibility that I would do worst on other sections... (i know that most colleges take the highest scores from each section, but i still dont want my score from other sections to go down)

What should I do...??

    You should take a sabbatical from the SAT and work on improving your sex life. I recommend Viagra as it promises INSTANT results unlike Princeton Review or Barrons.

    Sure take it another time. I am assuming you have taken it only once. It can't hurt to take it again. Most people take the SAT at least once. Don't worry too much about other scores going down. I'm sure they will stay in the same general range. Admissions reps encourage you to take it more than once, and they will look at the best scores. Also, your scores are fine. But again, you might as well take it twice. You can only end up with a best score :).
