I joined college confidential because I'm applying for the RHP. I'm wondering whether it's worthwhile to retake a 2300 SAT (800 CR, 710 M, 790 W). I did not anticipate doing this well and assumed that I would need to take it again in November, so I've already paid for November. I am satisfied with my score, even though I practiced math after taking the October test and now average 750ish.
I'm torn between taking it in November to boost my superscore or skipping it. Skipping it would mean losing money. I can't decide whether it's stupid to waste a paid-for test or neurotic to retake a perfectly good score. There is also a very real possibility that my math score will go up, boosting my superscore, but that my CR and writing scores will go down. That could look bad, especially if do not get into USC this year and next year I apply for schools that require me to report all scores.
What matters more for admission and merit scholarship consideration? I know that you aren't admissions officers, but your own personal experiences could help me a lot. Or you could just tell me to chill out.
