Hello, i've only taken my sat I's once and scored very respectively on it - 1460. i am kind of depressed since almost everyone retakes their sat for the best individual mark in math and verbal. because i am from canada (ontario) and there isn't much information about the sat, i was only told that we were allowed to take it once. so my question is. does it matter if you take the sat's more than once and would you be eligiable for extra consideration based on my "clutchness"? also would it be benefitial that i took the sat's from canada where i haven't had any prep courses or books on the sat?
any response would be welcome
thanks in advance

You have a great score, so don't worry about it. If it's in line with the scores of the schools you're applying to, then there is absolutely no need to retake. I doubt how many times you take it has any real bearing whatsoever on your admissions chances, as they only look at the highest score. Forget about it and focus on the rest of your app.

Your score is fine for all but the most elite colleges. If you are looking at Ivies and the like, I'd take it again. A higher score in one part will boost your composite score.

you don't get extra consideration, no.

I doubt you'd get extra consideration. Remember that the point of a standardized test is to be able to compare, so colleges aren't interested in excuses about no prep courses or study guides. People in Canada can easily order prep books online if they really wanted them.
You should have verified so-called information about being allowed to take it only once because clearly that isn't true. If you bring it up you will look like a sloppy researcher who was too lazy or ignorant to check his "facts".
