Applying Test-Optional?

Hello,

According to most sources I've viewed, my sat score is 100-150 points lower than the middle 50% of students accepted to my preferred college. With strong extracurriculars, reccomendations, and a solid essay, would it be better for me to apply without my test scores?

Yes, it would probably be in your best interest to apply test-optional. However, if you are a junior, then you still have time to retake the SAT and possibly improve your score by super-scoring it. If you are able to raise your score by those 100 or so points, then you could apply with your test scores. Hope this helps!
