I took the SAT this past january when i was a senior high school but i didnt get a very good score. Now im going to be at VCU this fall but i want to transfer right after my freshman year. The problem is that my score is not even close to the schools that i want to apply to and i want to raise my score.

As I understand it, anyone can sign up for the SAT; I've heard that people that work for Princeton Review, etc. just sign up for the test and memorize the questions to help them write review guides. I'm not 100% sure though.

You can take the SAT again and use any new score as part of your transfer application. Whether the SAT will be of any importance in relation to a transfer will depend on where you will be applying -- some will require it as part of the transfer and use it in the evaluation, others will ignore it or give it little or no weight for transfer purposes and instead rely principally on the grades and classes accumulated in that first year of college before transfer.
