I know that colleges look at your SAT scores if you are planning to transfer there, but can you take the SAT during your first year in college if you know you want to transfer to another school? I am asking this because I know I could do a lot better on the SAT if I take it my first year in college, thus giving me more of an edge when I want to transfer. I am planning on going to Purdue my first 2 years and transfer to Cornell. I just wasn't sure if you can take the SAT's after you graduate from high school. Any help would be great.

i'm planning to transfer...this year i've taken the SAT 3 times as a first year full-time college student.

You must be joking. OF COURSE you could do better on the SAT's during your first year of college. EVERYONE could. A stunt like that will make you look desperate and unworthy.

Start focusing on your college courses and stop trying to game the system.
