I'm stuck between possible majors right now. I'm leaning toward engineering but im not 100% sure so i want to apply to both a few engineering schools and a few schools as undecided in arts and sciences. Cornell is the school I really want to go to if i decide to do engineering. Also should i retake the SAT or and SAT 2s? THanks for any help im open to any suggestions.

"SAT:740 math 660 verbal 1400 combined?

Come on Mr. Math Olympiad. Are you trying to show us up? Not all of us can add 740 and 660...must you rub it in?

Pfft! The arrogance of some people...

740 + 660 = 1400

what are you talking about Deerhunter?

Lol, I think Deerhunter was pointing out that it's not necessary to put the combined score because most of us (myself excluded) can perform simple mathematical operations.
