Ok, so I took the SATs twice. Should I take my best math and verbal score and put that down as my SAT score? Or do I just take my best SAT score of the 2 and put that?

It depends on the school you are applying to. Most will take the best combined scores because it boosts their reputation for US News, however, not all of them do. I think it is either Harvard or Princeton that takes the best score of one sitting.

You have to write the date on which you took the SAT anyway. so write both scores like
V730/M650 (May 2003), V690/M750 (October 2003)

How to write SAT

First get a sharpened number 2 pencil. Then on a piece of paper make what looks to be a curvy "5" to get the "S". The proceed to draw 2 diagonal lines which join together at the top and then draw a line through the middle to get your letter "A". Finally draw a straight vertical line and a shorter horizontal line on top of that to get a "T".

Hope that helps!

Diagonal lines? diagonal lines of what? of the little box or or the whole form? I am confused and I cannot screw this up since it goes to an Ivy Leaguer. :(

It's quite clear that you're not ivy material.

I suggest you join the other failures at Stanford or Duke.
