Chancing profile and demographic

So, I ran my SAT score through Collegevine's chancing profile, and for my long reach schools it suggests that I submit my scores. My SAT score is below the overall average, however it exceeds the average for my demographic background. I have awesome grades and a good EC profile. Should I follow Collegevine's advice and submit my score to these schools?

I would go ahead and submit it. It shouldn't hurt your chances: the fact that you opted to take it at all is a plus. If you have good grades and ECs you should be just fine. Also, colleges are not weighting SAT scores as highly this year in admissions decisions because so many students were unable to take it due to COVID.

Hope this helps!
