Hi—I'm wondering what *you* think *Harvard* might think of this combination of SAT scores.
I've applied EA, and I took the Math IC SAT II in November for the first and last times, which means that I must use this score, and I'll rush it to Harvard now. I was sick on November 1st and felt horrible while taking the test, and so am not surprised at the result. I'm wondering, though, how bad my combination of scores seems overall.
SAT I: 1510 (800 V, 710 M)
SAT II: Writing: 800
Math IC: 620

you are def a verbal person
what major are you applying for?

not bad at all. they'll probably excuse one bad score. perfect in writing and lit? that's pretty damn good.

yeah how the hell do u get a perfect score on the lit? i did reasonably well cause im very good at reading and analytical stuff, but some of the questions are so vague, subjective and bad that it seems almost impossible to get the vast majority of them correct. Do u have any secret trick or something?

While on the topic of Harvard what do u think they'll think of these scores?
SAT I: 1510 (800 V, 710 M)
SAT II: Writing: 690
Math IC: 750

Drfunk: You couldn't be more right! I'd like to major in comparative literature.
Sprite888: This sounds annoying, I'm sure, but I really don't have a secret to those scores; I just love reading and writing and have always read a lot.

I mean, the 620 won't overshadow the others, will it? I'm probably overworrying here.

I'm in exactly the same boat, although I'm not applying to Harvard. But I have a perfect verbal on every verbal test offered (lit, writing, ACT english, SATIv) but my math....well, it hovers around 600. And I want to major in comp. lit!

Hey Curious and Dazed! I'm in the same situation as well. My math tests are just okay, while I've gotten a perfect on every lit/verbal test I've taken. I've heard that verbal actually matters much more to colleges; perfect verbal SATI scores are much rarer than perfect math scores. So I wouldn't worry; your testing shows your passion brilliantly.

Anyone else have any input?

What a huge discrepency between SAT I M and SAT II 1C! Your SAT 1 M is actually quite good, but your IC score is just bad (compared to your SATI). If you had taken the IIC, they might let it slide, but that score on a IC indicates that you, with limited master of mathematical concepts, still did well on the math part the SATI. How will Harvard look at it? They might not care if you're major is something non-math related but, still, Harvard has ton's of verbal geniuses like you who are also math geniuses. So I don't know. You still have a really good chance, but that IC score adds a lot of randomness.

As I mentioned above, I was sick while taking the IC and, faced with a choice of taking the test and doing poorly or not taking the test and having my early action application incomplete, I chose the former. Therefore I am hoping that they will understand from my SAT math score (and from my National Merit Semifinalist standing) that I am not stupid in math and that this was just a fluke. Although I wish I could somehow communicate to them that I was sick on test day—but I'm sure they don't want to hear any excuses.

Jangro, spare me the attempt at humor: I'm not laughing. I asked if anyone had any valid responses.
