SAT: 1430- 780 Math, 650 Verbal, trying hard to raise that verbal
- if English is 2nd language I learned, will colleges be lenient even though I have lived here since I was ten yrs old? Probably not, but just asking.
- Will take SAT IIs in Math IC, IIC, US History, Spanish

should I take SAT II asap or wait, because I could take Math and Spanish now?

Your rank and SATs look very similar to mine. I will attend Emory next year. I was rejected from Columbia early decision and Penn regular decision.
