I have a 1550, and I think it's absolutely FINE for admissions purposes. See, I really want to go for Presidential Scholar, because no one from my school has ever even qualified for the first round of Presidential Scholar... I think in October, if I'm careful, I can hit 1600, or at least 1590(which would probably qualify me since I'm a girl.) I'm not too concerned with "the opinion of the adcom" like everyone else is on these retake questions, because I'm not retaking the test for them, I'm retaking it in an effort to bring some pride to my school... Now what do I have to do to increase 50 points(just on verbal)? By the way, I've exhausted 10 Real Sats, so I also need extra practice tests...

Did you miss more analogies or reading last time?

u can try taking ACTs as well. its easier to be a presidential scholar qualifier with the ACT since u only need a 33. but this years presidential scholarship, 1540s qualified so u dont have to worry. the cut off is different every year

I'd just read. Kaplan's SAT/PSAT book has 3 tests, but I'm not sure if its worth it for just the reading. There's also a Kaplan CD-ROM that provides 4 practice test along with a bunch of other individual verbal sections. The reading questions depend on your ability to comprehend each individual passage, so maybe if you take it again you'll get passages you understand better.

How do you become a Presidential Scholar? I thought it was just for individual schools, or is it in the entire nation?
