SAT I Math: 800
SAT I Verbal: 760
SAT II Math IIC: 800
SAT II Writing: 800
SAT II Physics: 770

Does it REALLY matter THAT much that physics and verbal aren't 800s? If I intend to apply to Harvard EA, should I retake the SAT or SAT II Physics?

Or should I just shut up, be happy with my stats, and move on?

Thanks.

I would go with the latter and put your emphsis on other areas such EC but thats what I would do as for you,if you honestly feel you can do better then go for it.

For me, I'd go with the second choice. But that's just me.

Shut up. Said in the nicest possible way, of course. :)

Seriously, your stats are great. Don't stress.

Test scores only get you to a certain point. You are at that point. Higher test scores are not going to improve your odds, and you could even drop - which would look awful with such stats.

Good lord, it's all perfect. You should be gleaming with joy.

I agree... Having all of your scores be 800's won't do that much for your admissions decision anyways. Focus on EC's, community service, and keeping your grades up.

Hey, right now I have a 1320 SAT I (690M 630V) and for SAT II's I have an 800 Molecular Biology and a 700 for Math IIC. I want to go to UC Berkeley, Stanford, or Caltech. I know I can retake the SAT I and get an 800 Math, as well as retake Math IIC and get an 800 (I just ran out of time this time). Am I on the right track for these colleges?
