Should she send first/all SAT scores? Take essay, SATII tests?

Hi, I'm looking to help my daughter navigate this crazy college process.
We live in Maryland (Frederick County) and she wants to stay within an hour or two, preferably. She wants a larger school with Engineering, etc., as she is interested in that major as well as others.

Anyway, we know she'll apply to UM-CP, UMBC, etc. But she wants a reach, so we've started to think about Johns Hopkins.

Obviously, it's an amazing school, but we didn't really think that "big time". But, this darn girl has a UW 4.0, weighted like 4.6 or something, and it's like, hmmmm...She is also doing well on AP tests and is a Varsity athlete, volunteer, etc.

So after all this preamble, the issue is SAT scores. She just took it Saturday for the first time and of course we don't have scores back but we signed up to send scores to the Maryland schools and Hopkins. Is this mistake? Should we have waited to see if there good or wait to see if the second round in June is better? Does Hopkins superstore?

Also, should she take SAT In tests? What about the essay next time? How about the ACT?

Thanks!
