    I recently took my SAT's for 3rd time last month. My results are in and have been mailed to West Point. My question is, will they have my other two previous SAT scores? I scored higher in math last test. So, I was wondering if they will see my last SAT score. They were NOT sent to USMA. Only the last test was sent to USMA.

    I believe College board sends all available scores.

    OK, I am not sure whether I should pay the extra money to have the older grades sent or if they already have them. Thank you Click...

    IF I RECALL CORRECTLY, College Board allows you to send in just the scores you want... you wanna send in the highest scores you have so, let's say you took the test three times:

    1st try: MATH 620 VERBAL 600 WRITING 560
    2nd try: MATH 630 VERBAL 590 WRITING 560
    3rd try: MATH 600 VERBAL 600 WRITING 550

    You wanna send both your 1st and 2nd tries. They will superscore, so you'll get on your USMA application: MAT 630 VERBAL 600 WRITING 560

    Best of luck!

    I don't know if you already figured this out but I put in a request to send my son's scores today. You can choose which scores to send. USMA has given the college board information on how it uses the scores so there is a recommended set. If sending two scores will give you a better super score, you will see it on the screen. If a single set gives you the highest superscore, the SAT site will recommend only sending that set.

    I was pleasantly surprised to see that the college board charges the same price whether you send all your scores or only some of them. This is different than the ACT which charges by test sitting.
