I want to apply ED to Cornell, but the only feasible time for me to take my SAT Subject Tests is in November of my senior year (I'm retaking the regular SAT on the October test date). Is this too late? Or will Cornell get my scores in time?

Do colleges ignore SAT Math scores if Math II is higher?

Do top colleges require SAT II scores if you send the ACT?

I'm applying to very competitive schools (Ivy League and other top engineering schools), and I'm not sure whether it's important for me to take SAT subject tests. Does the ACT just replace the SAT, or does it replace both the SAT and the SAT II?
