For background, I am both Jewish (white) (my moms side) and Argentinian (my dads side) so I mark Hispanic (South America) and white. Both sides of my identity are important to me and I emphasize this in my essays. I have a 3.95 unweighted GPA with 8 Aps and moderately strong extracurriculars. I am also applying to a unique major (Latinx studies). I am not first gen or low income. Was submitting my scores a mistake? (Please be completely honest)
Hi friend! I think that if u are proud of this test score and think it’s the best that u are able to do (without paying a small fortune for SAT classes or spending a million hours on Khan Academy), then it is never a mistake to submit it. Just try to give extra attention the other parts of ur applications for these schools. Also, the worst possible thing that can happen is you get rejected, in which case u can then go major in Latinx studies (which sounds super interesting btw) at a different, even better school. Still, I wish u the best of luck with these two applications and I hope u get in! And don’t beat urself abt the SAT, cause College Board does NOT deserve that kind of validation.
I saw that you asked a similar question earlier - my response to it should help you. Best of luck with your applications!
The damage has already been done. You can't retract so don't stress. It's hard to say if it will matter but don't worry about it. Good luck!
Submitting your scores was a mistake.
