Should I send an SAT Subject Test score of 750 to top universities?

I took the SAT Biology (Molecular) Subject Test and got a score of 750 which is the 78th percentile. I am applying to universities like the University of Chicago, Northwestern University, Brown University, Johns Hopkins, Harvard, Rice, UPenn, etc. I was wondering if sending this score to these universities would benefit my application or if it would hurt me since it is not a top score.

I think it depends on the context. 750/800, even if it isn’t in the highest percentile is still a good score and it shows that you know what you are doing (to an extent haha) in this subject. I would send it, especially now, to help accredit your work in a standardized manner.

Best of luck 👏 😃
