okay, so i'm graduating this year, and going to a one year music school next year that just requires a GED and music talent, no SAT or anything. The year after that i'm planning to go to real college.
Anyway, my question regards retaking the SAT, because i want to apply to some competitive schools.
Last Nov. (i think, maybe Oct.) I took the SAT for the first time and scored
640 (M)
670 (V)
which I was happy with, but i'm almost positive i could do better.
should i retake after i graduate, or should i stick with the score
and do colleges look down on taking the SAT after graduation

awww, sorry that no one responded. I have no definite answer for you, but i would take it over, esp since you sad you want to go to a competitive school. This is only my opinion though.

You have nothing to lose by taking it over. Your 1310 is low for very competitive schools. Every year, too, college admissions becomes more competitive, so it's to your advantage to take it over. I doubt if the colleges care when you take it. They care, though, about your score.

Make sure you aren't one of those people who studies for 20 hours and then ends up scoring 60 points lower though...
