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?

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...

2230 SAT superscore - should I take the test a third time?

I think I can get an 800 on the Reading section, and I'd like to raise my Writing score into the 700 range. Is it worth it for me to retake the test to earn a ...

High Single-Sitting SAT Score Better Than High Superscore?

Do colleges view high single-sitting SAT scores in a better light than high superscores? I got a 2300 in one sitting on my first SAT, but my friend took the SAT four times and has a 2400 superscore. Should I retake the test to try and get a perfect superscore as well?
