Mechanical engineering with a 600 Math SAT?

I really want to get into a good mechanical engineering program, but I'm concerned because my Math score is only a 600 (lower than both my Reading and Writing scores). I've gotten As in all my math and science classes in high school, so there's no issue on that front. Should I reconsider my major be...

SAT score 150 points lower than predicted?

I got a 1650 on my SAT, and I was expecting to get at least an 1800. I did a fair amount of prep work before the test on my own and with Princeton Review books. Where am I going wrong? How can I make sure I reach my goal next time?

2190 SAT and 33 ACT: Which should I take now?

I've taken the SAT twice, and my superscore is a 2190. The issue I have is that my critical reading score is not up to the same level as my other scores (660 vs. 750 on Math and 780 on Writing). I decided to take an ACT practice test as an experiment and got a 33 without any prep. Now I'm in a dilem...

Retake SAT, or Take SAT Math Subject Test?

I previously took the old SAT and scored a 2200, but I wanted to get a higher score on the math section of the SAT since all of my errors were made on the "easy" level questions, which is frustrating and is probably the cause of a lot of careless errors. I would really like to take 2 SATs so that I'...

Plan to Retake SAT if Sending All Scores?

I plan to take the SATs in June and then retaking it in October. I think my June score will be around 1250 or less.

Should I retake the ACT or try the SAT instead?

I got a 30 on the ACT, but I didn't take it with Writing. I wasn't expecting to get this high of a score the first time around, so I figured it was fine to save Writing for a retake. At this point, I have to either take the ACT again with Writing or take the SAT. I'm thinking maybe I should go with...

Worth Retaking SAT Without Superscoring?

I found out about the SATs too late so I only got to take the old SAT once in January 2016. My guidance counselor is advising me to take the SATs again because she is worried that the score isn't good enough for the schools that I am aiming for (I got a 2230: 800W, 740M, 690R). Do you think it is wo...
