I speak Japanese fluently and already got an 800 on the sat2s. but im also really into spanish, u could say im pretty good for a 3rd year student. but would it make me look SIGNIFICANTLY BETTER to colleges if i take the spanish SATIIS in June?
I could risk a low score (since so many hispanics take it and score choice is gone. [tear])
ps. i am looking at harvard, princeton, etc.

u should go take the writing and math SATIIs. i don't know of any schools that require any more than those plus 1 of your choice. colleges just look at your top 3 scores if you take 4+ SATIIs. so i wouldn't take it.

although, i heard somewhere harvard won't accept and SATII in a language u speak fluently? anyone else hear that?

r u serious? colleges only look at ur top 3 scores? then what's the point of taking many others to prove ur really well rounded? btw. i already took writing and math
btw, if it helps, im looking into international business

Simple enough, take a practice then make your decision. I score a 800 on my SAT II Chinese even though I only attended first grade in China. The language test is a joke, however they are poorly formated. When I took my test I have question about the question.
