Does a 1390 SAT compliment a 4.0?

Hi guys! Quick question: I will be applying to a test-optional university with a 4.0 GPA (unweighted). Should I submit my 1390 SAT score? I am aiming to earn a high merit scholarship at a not-very selective university (Delaware Valley University). I heard the admissions counselor say that if you have a 1200 and a 4.0, apply test-optional because that 1200 will lower the scholarship amount.

What do y'all think about my score?

A 1390 is a pretty solid SAT score... I would consider the average SAT score for the school and as long as yours is a good bit higher than it you should be fine and considered high merit. 1390 is also a lot higher than 1200, don't worry about it too much. Good luck on your application!
