man i dunno wut happened...
i got a 1430 in oct. and then i took it again in nov, and got a 1210... i kno this is extremely rare to drop 220 pts... man, i feel so dumb. will this hurt my admission process?
studied really hard over summer
the colleges might think the 1430 was just a "lucky" day or something... gosh.
is there any way to cancel my last score? probably not right?
does this mean i shouldn't apply to northwestern & jhu?? dam

doesn't matter. they should take your highest scores regardless your testing results. so, go right ahead and apply to jhu and northwestern.

i dunno. you have 2 1200s and only 1 1400 score, so the schools might look at it as a "lucky day". you might want to include like an additional letter explaining the situation.

The answer ok K516 is correct. It does not matter at all. Schools will take your highest individual scores.
It is also a BAD idea to "explain" lower grades or bad tests scores unless:
1. The situation was EXTREMELY compelling
2. The school specifically asks for it on the application.
Why is it a bad idea? Because the excuses will typically sound a lot worse than the situation you are trying to explain.

Xiggi is right. At least this time. (Very often, actually.)

OMG same thing happened to me except i dropped a hundred in november- the sad thing is i thought i did well. i already got recruited from all the UCs as well as washington u @st louis. I know im not dumb. i think there was a flaw in the test. i was expecting 1500s and i got a 1270
thats life i guess...sucks
